Cascades Raptor Center

The Cascades Raptor Center has one of the largest collections of native raptor species in the Pacific Northwest. Visitors can view nearly 50 birds of prey in large outdoor aviaries. The Raptor Center is open to the public year-round and we schedule educational programs both onsite and offsite for students of all ages. If you are looking for things to do in Eugene, Oregon, the Raptor Center is a great place to bring friends and family. See our new video here.

Talons, Tastings and Tidbits 2017
Thanks to your support, our annual benefit was a great success! We made new friends, solidified our long-term relationships, broke previous fundraising records, and began new, fulfilling community connections. See our slide show above for a few pictures of the evening. Attendees were treated to an evening filled with excitement, good food, delicious wine and other beverage tastings and many of our raptor ambassadors. Dmitri, Eurasian Eagle Owl, returned this year for a fly over visit -- amazing the crowds with silent owl flight. Stay tuned as we plan toward a busy 2018 with lots of growth and exciting opportunities to come! THANK YOU!!!
