Founded by award-winning bird rehabilitator Louise Shimmel, the Cascades Raptor Center houses more than 60 birds and a wildlife hospital whose staff has treated thousands of injured birds of prey. More than 30 native Oregon species, including eight types of hawks and 11 types of owls, perch in the center’s capacious aviaries, each placed along serene forest trails. As visitors meander through the trees, the piercing gaze of ospreys, kites, and falcons shoot through the enclosures while bald and golden eagles show off their awe-inspiring wingspans and fashionable haircuts. During educational talks (1 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, November through March; noon and 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, April through October), handlers bring raptors out on their thick gloves to pose for portraits and field questions on their favorite rodents or brands of talon polish. In addition, a Screech Owl membership lets an individual waltz through the center’s gates for free throughout the year, as well as bequeathing a guest pass for a friend who shares their fondness for feathery predators.

This is one of my absolute favorite places. The staff and volunteers are friendly and the birds are all beautiful. Several in particular seem to like putting on a show for the folks walking past their enclosures.

Great place for adults and kids - our 4-year-old grandson loved it!

This place is great. My kids had a wonderful time. Each enclosure had a story about the bird inside. Definitely a great place to support, the work they do is amazing. Each of the birds is a rescue so when you go you are contributing to their care.
