Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. – Nelson Mandela

We can come to you!

Some schools take advantage of our Wild Wings traveling educational programs that bring the birds to classrooms across the region. It’s the next best thing to a visit to CRC and puts a little of the natural world into your day.

What is involved with CRC’s traveling education program?

We bring live birds to help teach your class what makes raptors unique in the avian world and what actions can be taken to make a difference for wildlife and our environment. We can also do an offsite event during which we set up a display table with information, props, and live raptors.

What types of birds do you bring with your traveling program?

The types of birds will vary depend on the type of program you choose. However, we usually bring a mix of owls, hawks and falcons. You may add an eagle to any program or event for an additional charge.

How long does each program last? How many programs can I have?

All of Carolina Raptor Center’s formal education programs last approximately 45 minutes. However, we can modify this timing to best fit your needs. We can do up to 3 onsite programs in a day and 2 programs a day at your school or facility.

Are your programs targeted for specific ages or grades?

Carolina Raptor Center’s formal education programs complement North Carolina Standard Course of Study curriculum standards; there are three programs to choose from, with a wide range of topics.
