Contact Information and Directions

Be Aware - For hospital renovation, Cascades Raptor Center will be closing on Sunday, October 13th until November 1st.


Visit the Cascades Raptor Center - open Tuesday - Sunday from 10am - 4pm from October - March and 10am -6pm from April through September​. We are located in south Eugene on the side of Spencer Butte. Birds are on display in large, outdoor aviaries viewed by walking winding, hillside trails. These woodland, gravel paths have a moderate grade, but in some locations the grade can be steep. Find directions below and our contact form at bottom of page. No dogs are allowed onsite, including in parked vehicles. Service animals are the exception, please see our policy for specifics.

Cascades Raptor Center is on the rightside of Fox Hollow Road and the first driveway past the Ridgeline Trail sign and across from the Trail parking lot. Look for our sign behind the large black metal mailbox. 

On-site parking is limited. We unfortunately do not have room for large RVs, trailers or buses. If our parking lot is full, or you have a large RV, trailer or bus, please park either along Christensen Road, which extends from the Trailhead parking lot or along Fox Hollow Road - but please do not park beyond our mailbox (coming from the direction of town) and do NOT park in the Ridgeline Trail parking lot across the street. Thank you!

NO dogs are allowed on site, even in cars.
Certified service dogs are an exception but we would very much appreciate a call in advance. Thanks.
