Visit the Wildlife Center

Important Update: Due to the close proximity of confirmed Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), we are taking extra precaution to protect our non-releasable ambassadors. This includes foot bath sanitization stations for guests upon entry to our nature center. Several of our birds are temporarily unable to come out for Wild Encounters. However, we are monitoring Oregon’s HPAI cases and will update our website as we receive further information.

Guided tours take place Tues – Sun between the hours of 10:30am – 3:30pm. Please see below to schedule your visit. We look forward to seeing you!

Guided Tours: $10/adult; $8/youth (3-12); children under 3 are free

There is a minimum fee of $40 per tour group; Tour groups are capped at 12 people.

Enjoy a guided tour of our Wildlife Center. Meet our team of Raptor Ambassadors, 10 birds of prey who are non-releasable to the wild due to permanent injuries or other circumstances. Tours typically run for 45 minutes. Before booking, please review our behavior guidelines for all onsite events.

All tours are guided and must be scheduled in advance.
