  • Getting a chance to see raptors up close is special. The people at the Carolina Raptor Center spend time rescuing and rehabilitating injured raptors. You can see various species of birds of prey. I have volunteered there multiple times and it is always a rewarding experience. Take the family and walk the trails. We had a wonderful time walking around here and seeing and learning about the various birds. It is quite a large place with many raptors in residence. The displays were well done and very informative.
  • A wonderful place to visit with the family. What's cool is I seen many of these factors in my neighborhood and I was able to get a closer look and learn about them. You're out in nature with these birds of prey getting up close. The work that is being done with the birds is amazing.
