Cascades Raptor Center

Eugene - Things to do with your Team - Travel - Hotels4TeamsFounded and operating for a noble purpose, Cascades Raptor Center devotes its time and resources to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of birds, specifically raptors.  Now these aren’t the dinosaur kind of raptors, sadly.  Raptor is another term for birds of prey.  Observe various species of owls, hawks, falcons, and eagles when you visit Cascades.  Private tours can be scheduled and are recommended with larger groups to get a more immersive experience.  Learn about the 50 or so birds that reside at the center and meet a few of them while an instructor discusses facts about these birds and how the center cares for them.  This is a unique attraction that warrants a visit while you’re in Eugene. 32275 Fox Hollow Rd, Eugene, OR 97405
