  • Another wonderful place to take the kids and let them see just how amazing these animals are. I do suggest that you go in the summer when they have more live shows and interaction including flight exhibits by the birds, but anytime is great. There is also a rescue center and bird hospital on sight, so go and enjoy!!
  • Loved it! It's a great place that not only showcases raptors who cannot be re-released back into the wild, but also provides excellent care to each bird. Conservation efforts are so important, and it's wonderful that there is time and attention given to these beautiful creatures. The staff was friendly, informative, and inviting. Will be back again next time I'm in NC!
