Cascades Raptor Center is a nature center and wildlife hospital.

A small collection of natural history exhibits are visible in the Visitor’s Center. The Raptor Center is open to the public year-round. Educational programs are available onsite and offsite for students of all ages. Though the vast majority of visitors are admitted for self-guided tours, in depth personal tours are available with prior notification. If you are looking for things to do in Eugene, Oregon, the Raptor Center is a great place to bring friends and family.
