Cascades Raptor Center is a nature center and wildlife hospital. Visitors enjoy a large collection of resident raptors – nearly 40 birds of prey, native to the Pacific Northwest – in large outdoor aviaries. A small collection of natural history exhibits are visible in the Visitor’s Center. The Raptor Center is open to the public year-round. Educational programs are available onsite and offsite for students of all ages. Though the vast majority of visitors are admitted for self-guided tours, in depth personal tours are available with prior notification. If you are looking for things to do in Eugene, Oregon, the Raptor Center is a great place to bring friends and family.
If you are visiting, we are sorry, but NO DOGS are allowed, even in cars. Canines are natural predators of raptors, and raptors’ extremely keen eyesight makes them able to spot dogs at a great distance. A resident bird spooked by a dog can incur serious injuries or training setbacks from only a single encounter. See our service animal policy.
Cascades Raptor Center’s Wildlife Hospital provides high quality medical treatment and rehabilitation to over 300 sick, injured, and orphaned birds each year.

It takes a “whole ‘lotta love” to care for resident and rehabilitating raptors. We’re fortunate that our supporters show their love in many forms! Giving is especially critical now that we are closed to the public. Thank you in advance for this consideration!
