“Kudos to the Raptor Center”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

The Raptor Center is very well maintained. The stories of the animals make the animals very personal and touching. Kudos to this rehab center; some of these birds have been there years and look completely at home.

“Wonderful project and addition to Eugene”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

A great place to visit with out-of-town guests and the fees help to sustain the mission of the center.

“You're here for the birds.”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Staff is very friendly and welcoming. I love to take pictures, and you can do that here, but it is a little difficult through the fencing, but the fencing has to be there to protect the birds and to protect the visitors. The birds are beautiful. Donations are for a very good cause, and glad to have someone looking out for these majestic creatures.

“I love this place!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

We stop at the raptor center every time we're in the area. I love it! You can get pretty close to most of the birds and their stories are quite fascinating. It's an extra special treat if you can be there during feeding time. We love to take all of our out of town visitors there.

“unique”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

A small, but well-tended bird rehabilitation and education center. One can view the birds quite close up. The trails and surroundings are easy to navigate, fun for children and often, quite solitary.
