Dedicated to the conservation of raptors, Carolina Raptor Center features more than 30 species of raptors, including eagles, owls, vultures, falcons, hawks, and more. For more than 30 years, we've provided environmental education opportunities for visitors from around the corner and across the world. Stroll along the nature trail for a self-guided tour, observe raptors in their aviaries, or catch a flight presentation. Whether you are looking at birds with a child’s or scientist’s eye, the beauty and magnificence of CRC’s raptor denizens will spark wonder. Our onsite medical center treats 900-1,000 birds a year, releasing almost 70% back into the wild.
