Visiting the Center

The Center for Birds of Prey offers visitors a unique insight into the lives and impressive adaptations of more than 30 species of birds of prey including eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kites and vultures. Whether you are a birder, a photographer or simply want to spend the day outdoors, we invite you to explore the natural history of birds of prey through guided walking tours, personalized environmental education programs and striking free-flight demonstrations.

The Center is open to the public year-round on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Guided Walking Tours are available at 10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and flight demonstrations are scheduled at 11:30 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
