World Center For Birds of Prey
The World Center for Birds of Prey is home to the world's largest flock of captive California Condors. Condors produced at our breeding facility are released to the wild in northern Arizona. Captive birds are monitored by video, which allows the collection of detailed behavioral information. Studies on disease, contaminants, nutrition, and genetics help biologists evaluate problems facing birds in the wild.
We are new to the area still discovering new things to do in Idaho, brought my teenagers to kill some time. It's not a very big place but the staff was pretty knowledgeable about the Birds. We stayed to see the live bird show I think it's a place for everybody and every age, places like this teaches kids and adults to appreciate nature. Most definitely visit again, next time will remember to bring a picnic.
I've lived right up the road from this place for a while now and had never stopped by. Recently my dad came to visit me from Philadelphia, it was his first time in Boise and going to the Birds of Prey center was first on his list of places he wanted to go. We went with my 6 year old daughter, and it was a great experience for all 3 of us. The employees are very knowledgeable, there are activities for persons of any age, and the whole experience is very interactive. This is a great, affordable thing to do for any occasion.
Nice place. Good exhibits. I WOULDN'T bring young kids. Even teenagers will be bored. As a 40 year old, I could appreciate the exhibits. Informational and interesting
My husband and I LOVED coming here! Very beautiful view of Boise when you get there. Staff was very friendly and informative. Will definitely come back next time were in town.
Great conservation efforts! Wonderful, approachable, kind staff! They do Idaho proud!
