Review for Cascades Raptor Center, Eugene, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

If there was ever a place where you can go to be with great friendly people and with folks who know their birds, it's the CRC in Eugene, OR. Not only do they take the time to explain things to you, they genuienly care about everyone there. They accept people as they are and work with them and their strengths. They take a proactive approach to working together and are willing to help you understand how things work in "birdland." Being new to birds, I want to learn and the staff takes the time to help you without judging you. Specifically, they are there to help you help the birds by showing you how to care for them and how you can make a difference. They work with you and are willing to give you the time you need to learn. In a word they are "Awesome!"
