Review for Eagle Valley Raptor Center Inc., Cheney, KS, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My family has visited EVRC many times since it began. My daughter has gone on tours with school, and Ken Lockwood has come to her school a few times to do presentations for her class. Ken always does a fabulous job teaching the kids various facts about the raptors, while at the same time making sure the kids are respectful toward the birds. He asks the children questions to keep their attention and get them involved. The raptors at EVRC, as well as their environment, are well maintained. Repairs are made as needed to keep the animals safe while providing the best view possible for visitors. A sidewalk was recently put in to make the tours more accessible to those who are in wheelchairs. I have always enjoyed seeing the passion Ken has not only for his birds but also for making sure people leave EVRC having learned some new bit of information about the raptors. He strives to give everyone a new respect for these creatures and let them know what they can do to help take care of the environment the raptors live in.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

watching it progress and grow over the years since it first was started.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the passion Ken Lockwood has for the raptors and their well-being.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely dedicated and sacrificial.
