Cascades Raptor Center Reviews & Ratings
This place was so cool! I honestly wasn't expecting a bunch of birds to be all that interesting and I mostly went because my husband wanted to go. But I had a really good time. It was neat to get to read all the stories about how each bird got there and about their personalities. We got there a little late and were there like 20 minutes after they closed and they didn't hassle us at all. Super nice people. Really interesting place. Highly recommend.
Great place to visit with family and friends. A limitless walking involved but well worth it. Thanks to places like this, as these raptors from the wild deserve a chance at life. Thanks for the work you do! If I lived here I’d visit often.
Excellent conservation and educational value combined with the fun of viewing a number of quite majestic birds rather closely. Yet, It is not a zoo. The avian enclosures are all outdoors, so plan for the weather. -We went when it was raining once and it was kind of nice to enjoy the center in solitude, sharing the rain with the birds. Additionally the visitor parking lot is small so you may have to park down the hill and walk a short distance uphill to reach the center. Once at the center the trails are broad and easy to navigate. The trails are lined with gravel. The birds on display each have reasons that they are unable to return to the wild. The enclosures’ information panels tell the story of its inhabitant as well as interesting facts about its species. By getting to know the birds here through their stories and their striking beauty, one begins to see an overall picture of raptors as an intelligent, interesting, and beautiful part of the natural world. The Raptor center makes it uniquely possible to experience and see them this way first hand. Recommend for anyone who enjoys nature.
Great way to see some endangered and protected birds up close. Each display has two or more information pages telling about the species and about the specific bird. Fun with the family. Everyone working here is very friendly and knowledgeable.
Great place to walk around - kids enjoyed seeing all the variety of raptors, and staff in the visitor center and doing demonstrations were friendly. Note that it is all outdoors except for the small visitor center, so the visit would be best on a nice day. Also, paths are all gravel and a couple fairly steep hills so might not be the best if you have any mobility issues.
