Proceeds benefit the center's on-site wildlife hospital for birds of prey, which has treated more than 2,500 birds suffering from broken wings or existential ennui. Expand your winged knowledge at informative handler talks in which feathered friends are allowed to preen for paparazzi and field questions from their perch on the handler’s glove. Avid avian watchers can explore the Cascades Raptor Center grounds Tuesday to Sunday and catch handler talks on weekends at 1 p.m.

As the green thumbs behind One Earth Lawn and Garden, Daniel and Justin view residential and commercial landscapes as integral pieces of the overall environment, a perspective they picked up after a combined three decades in the industry.
