A wonderful time with grandson, watching the birds fly, learning about the different species and walking through the forest. The turkey vultures were the hit of the day for an eight year old. Must have been the stories about their poop!

From the time we arrived the staff was extremelly friendly and helpful. The demonstration of the birds flying was much more than birds flying. We learned in great detail about each species and how beneficial each of them are to our eco system. Also, moving forward about how to prevent birds getting hit by cars due to human acts. Very knowledgeable and very connected to their birds of prey. Thank you to the staff...

We have been out to visit the raptors three times this year. The long drive from where we live is well worth it. My son loved owls before we came to the centre but it has sparked a real passion for learning about birds. He tells everyone he is going to be a bird scientist when he grows up, and can identify all the different types of owls he has learned about at the raptors centre. The staff are always knowledgable and friendly. 10/10 Family outing.

Beautiful birds of prey fly inches over your head to land and perch next to you on the handlers glove. All I can say is wow what an experience!

From Our Editors

In the verdant Cowichan Valley, Pacific Northwest Raptors cares for a diverse flock of birds of prey—owls twist their heart-shaped heads curiously, and hawks look on with eyes like copper coins. The staff provides them a safe habitat while educating the public about their habits, hunting methods, and favourite brands of feather cosmetics. Eagles and falcons ride warm zephyrs overhead daily, searching for prey high over the canopy when they aren’t perched back at the centre.

Avian experts demo the birds’ skills during encounters, which include the opportunity for patrons to have a hawk or owl perch on a gloved hand. Intensive workshops and week-long falconry courses let guests settle in with the animals beneath the towering trees, which hush each other liltingly in the wind. Regular family events at the centre facilitate bonding with the regal raptors, many of which help in film work and wildlife management.
