Cascade Raptor Center Family Events

Raptor CenterEUGENE, Ore. — Some families are kicking off summer learning about nature and wildlife.

This is the second of five family nature discovery days being put on by the Cascades Raptor Center.

Families can explore the facility and learn about the different birds or make arts and crafts. Organizers say they host one of these events every last Sunday of the month during summer.

“We have different projects that are sort of for kids but you usually see the parents helping and getting involved as well but, it’s mostly just to get everybody outside to appreciate nature and our beautiful area and to see some lovely birds,” said Louise Shimmel, executive director of the Cascade Raptor Center.

The theme for next month’s event is “wildlife play hospital”, where families will learn how to rescue birds.
