Cascades Raptor Center aims to promote and ensure the wellness of birds of prey and foster a greater appreciation for the role wildlife plays in the natural and cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest. We believe artwork can be an effective way to build connections with local wildlife and raise public consciousness around key issues impacting the natural world.

To highlight raptors in our community and the Pacific Northwest landscape, Cascades Raptor Center is launching its first ever Raptor Art Challenge that will culminate in a collaborative native birds of prey exhibition with artwork from various Oregon artists.

Together, the exhibition will build creative avenues for the community to connect with native raptor species, introduce a variety of artists spanning generations and mediums, invoke a sense of outdoor wonder, and inspire viewers to discover more about raptors and the vital roles they play in Oregon.
