For the Birds


Childhood memories are made during family time outside, exploring and learning in nature. So if you’re looking for ways to create those memories, drive eight minutes off the TransCanada Highway in Duncan to a bird of prey sanctuary. It’s a must-visit for your family this summer.
Set against the backdrop of the beautiful Cowichan Valley, The Pacific Northwest Raptor Centre is a unique interactive attraction that is dedicated to the education and conservation of birds of prey. Eagles, hawks, falcons, vultures, owls and other birds fly free each day from the centre, making for spectacular close-up encounters with these magnificent creatures. The dedicated and well-informed staff lead tours to help your family learn all about the birds. Picnic tables and washrooms top off the adventure nicely with some space for a packed lunch (but be careful not to get your sandwich pecked).
