Carolina Raptor Center ~ Huntersville, NC

Carolina Raptor Center

We are truly blessed to have Carolina Raptor Center in our backyard in Huntersville right outside of Charlotte, NC. This center is incredible with its dedication to environmental education and the conservation of birds of prey through public education, the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned raptors and research.

Their environmental education programs reach about 40,000 students each year.

Raptors are leading scientific indicators of a healthy environment.

If you find an injured raptor please call 704-875-6521 ext. 111

and leave a message for their Rescue team.

Here are the last events for the month of August.
