We were treated to a very detailed tour by Pat, who shared many interesting stories with us about the raptors. He was super knowledgeable about the birds, and was very passionate about sharing his expertise and love of these amazing creatures with us. This was a great experience for both the kids and adults!

Lurch, the turkey vulture, was a great educator, along with his handler. For only $5, the entire family got admission to the area and the raptor show. Donations are accepted. The river front and seating area were beautiful, with numerous lizards and birds present.

This is an amazing place. Gotta see the rescued raptors they have on the way in. On Sundays at 11:30AM they speak about the birds they have there. (Check to see if times change) Please keep the area natural, clean, and be easy on the fish on the river.

I love what this place does! The staff and volunteers are very helpful and polite. My family enjoys seeing Lurch come out to visit and hear about all the updates the Nature center had to offer our feathered friends.

Amazing place that helps birds of prey rehabilitate. You can see the birds who can no longer survive on their own and are cared for at the center! I loved it so much that I took my students for one of their presentations :)
