Experience the whoosh of an owl’s wings as it flies and meet several live owls at the only all-owl education center in the United States.

Ruby the Great Horned Owl, Uhu the Eurasian Eagle Owl, and Piper the Barn Owl work at the Owl Center, and Uhu flies during the daily programs. Visitors can also touch owl feathers, see real owl skulls and eggs, see the details of nine perfectly mounted owl species, enjoy owl artwork created by kids from around the world, and learn the main sounds made by each local owl species. Owl Center staff will give you an in-depth tour of various aspects of the owl world as they take you through the displays and engage you during the programs.
