World Center For Birds of Prey

5668 West Flying Hawk Lane

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.

I've come here many times throughout my native Boise life and always enjoy my time spent. These guys do amazing things for our birdies and need as much support as we can give!! Everyone is super knowledgeable and truly care about their mission. I love bringing my daughter here and she has a great time interacting and learning. Definitely a must for Boise visitors and residents alike!

Great place to visit. Staff are very knowledgeable and friendly. It's a great opportunity to see some very cool hawks/eagles/owls. The Center is fairly kid friendly. The grounds are well cared for and clean. It's not huge but you can easily spend a couple of hours there with lots of educational / informative and interactive exhibits. They also offer live demonstrations. We saw a staff member train one of the hawks and watched another demonstration with a Milky Owl. There are benches and grass to eat lunch or let kids run a little bit. There is also a trail hike.

The World Center For Birds of Prey is an amazing place, and we are so lucky to have them in our community! They provide a wonderful educational experience for all ages, and have been involved in very important conservation projects that I have followed for most of my life. It is so encouraging to see how far they have come with the Perigrine Falcon and California Condor programs since my childhood. This is a place to return to, again and again. I love it here.

Such beautiful birds! The volunteers are amazing! It's very peaceful! It's absolutely worth the $10, even though it is small. I would love to visit again!

Highly recommend! This is a great place for the family. The name World Center For Birds of Prey is no over statement. It IS the world center and Smithsonian quality is reflected. This is a seemingly undiscovered treasure in the treasurer valley with conservation work world wide.
