Cascades Raptor Center Overview
Most of the birds received for care have been injured either directly or indirectly by humans - e.g., collisions with vehicles, power lines, windows or fences; shot, poisoned, trapped or their nests destroyed by logging or landscaping. CRC has healed and released well over 1000 hawks, owls, falcons, osprey and eagles to the wild. Public education can help prevent these problems by enhancing awareness, appreciation and respect for all wildlife.
On-site, over 60 non-releasable birds of 31 native Oregon species are on display in large outside aviaries; butterfly and other gardens help teach visitors what can be done to create wildlife habitat, even close to home; a visitors center with eggs, nests, skulls, feathers, pictures and books helps teach the wonder of our natural world.
Off-site, our Education Team of experienced handlers and program birds brings the wild alive to classrooms, summer camps, and public events.
