  • HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for a little something to do that’s not on the beaten path or something you would think of as a day adventure. Super informative, the staff are great! It’s worth sitting through the demo and watching the birds they bring out and then walking the grounds. Everything is super clean and the bird enclosures are immaculate. Very impressed, we will absolutely be back.
  • Where do I begin? My husband and I traveled from out of state and are huge owl fans, so the center was kind enough to arrange a private tour for us. We got to spend almost two hours with the director and met many amazing birds up close. They do incredible work at the center for the bird population - from medical to rescue to conservation work. Really passionate about their work and such welcoming people. The facility is incredibly maintained, well-organized, beautiful. If you're in Charleston, absolutely visit this beautiful destination. It's an easy drive under 30 minutes.
