Review for Cascades Raptor Center, Eugene, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This is the most amazing group of extremely dedicated people doing their utmost to both aid the raptors they care for in their rehabilitation, but also in their dual role as educators of the public. They bring birds to public events, a time-consuming effort, in order that people might see these fascinating birds up close, to awaken the urge to care for them to better protect the birds themselves and their habitats for future generations. I used to be able to physically provide time, but running my own business has prevented that recently, so I dedicate time to poignancy art work and creating images for their outreach efforts. This is the single organization that I've donated funds and time to in the past 4-5 years due to the outstanding, dedicated efforts of both staff and volunteers. Not only is their care of the birds they help outstanding, but their efforts to include members and reach out to the community is exemplary as well.

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

seeing the changes in public perception of the birds they care for due to their efforts! I've also volunteered to bring smaller raptors in for care, participated in events and talking to the public about the birds and the organization.

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

opportunity to see and experience these birds up close, and to experience/feel the caring that goes in to each bird's rescue and rehabilitation effort.

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

dedicated people who are extremely committed to being there for these birds, helping one another maintain the ongoing efforts under what are sometimes demanding circumstances that are life and death struggles for these magnificent birds.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Increase the odds of more birds being able to be released due to added staff on hand, larger and additional compounds for birds' recovery and flight-readiness, ease their funding struggles & add space for education and public engagement.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
