I saw a listing in the Wichita Eagle about Eag;e Valley Raptor Center. Our grandson's 10th birthday was months away, but I knew he would really enjoy this place. We brought him and his friends to Eagle Valley Raptor Center in Sept 2008. We had a wonderful time. Ken showed everyone all the birds and let the birthday boy hold one. Also got into the cage with the bald eagles and really enjoyed watching Ken interact with Annie. He has space for eating in a shelter as well. His discussion about how to work with birds seemed as if it was made for humans too. Treat them well and they will be loyal and return. Just one punishment and they lose their trust and won't come back. We've seen the articles in the Eagle and also ran into Ken and one of the birds at the Home Show in Wichita. I have enjoyed Ken's Facebook site too.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the attention Ken pays to raptors that need rehab to return to the wild or that need a place to live because they can't return to the wild. The latter are used for educational purposes.
