Cascades Raptor Center is a 501c3 non-profit Nature Center and Wildlife Hospital for birds of prey in Eugene, Oregon. Open for visitors Tuesday-Sunday.
Through wildlife rehabilitation and public education, Cascades Raptor Center fosters a connection between people and birds of prey. Our goal is to help the human part of the natural community learn to value, understand, and honor the role of wildlife in preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Pacific Northwest.
Cascades Raptor Center has two main community services:
Public Education designed to enhance the awareness, respect, appreciation, and care of the earth and all its inhabitants so critical for a balanced and healthy planet. The Raptor Center houses nearly 50 avian ambassadors. These resident birds, along with visual media and written material, help create a positive, first-hand experience of wildlife through field trip visits to the Nature Center and out reach presentations and exhibits at schools and public events.
Rehabilitation and release of orphaned, sick, and injured wildlife, primarily birds of prey (raptors), using the highest standards of medical treatment and care, and the best facilities possible.
