Take a walk on the wild side at Carolina Raptor Center's Raptor Trail.
Catch wonder by the tail with our formal and informal education programs. Children 3 to 93 will delight the science and natural history of 38 raptor species and how they have inspired human invention.
Staff and volunteers at this hidden hospital in the woods treats over 900 injured and orphaned birds a year – more than any other US raptor center. Over 70% are released back into the wild!

You’ll love coming to us!
By far the best way to experience the raptors of Carolina Raptor Center is by coming to see them in their natural habitat. Our location inside Latta Nature Preserve is a perfect setting to get kids out of the classroom and up close and personal with nature. Our on-site education program offers your class an opportunity to see birds of prey up close, while one of our skilled educators teaches your students about these incredible birds.
