World Center For Birds of Prey reviews
Just outside of Boise proper, this property is preserved for the express purpose of understanding these birds and the necessity for ecology. Open 24 hours. more »
The Family and I went here last summer and we were loving it. Some very impressive birds, but check the website for what is happening there. Sometimes during certain seasons the center will sequester.... more »
Gorgeous location and layout. Amazing species on display and an outstanding program. Highly recommend you join the guided tours at 11am and 2:30pm so you can see the falconers museum and the Sheikhs exhibit in the research building as those are the only times it is open to the public and it was very worth the time. Volunteers and staff are highly knowledgeable and friendly and the birds are stunning. Only wish I had come on a weekend in the fall as the free-flights events they described (where the birds are taken out and allowed to fly free) sounds amazing to witness. Very educational center that I highly recommend for anyone visiting the Boise area.
Adults and school-age children will enjoy the opportunity to get up close to the lively California Condors, an American bald eagle and many other beautiful birds of prey. We enjoyed the live presentations with the knowlegable staff handling an owl and red tail hawk. The birds are located both indoors and outdoors, so this place is best visited in good weather. We were there on a mild August day, about 75° with little wind. Because the center sits atop a hill, I imagine it could get quite windy, but the view is amazing. There is a lovely picnic area and the exhibits are suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.
