About this image

The world is the true classroom. The most rewarding and important type of learning is through experience, seeing something with our own eyes. – Jack Hanna

Welcome homeschoolers for a day of fun and science at Carolina Raptor Center. Join us for a Meet the Raptors Presentation, where our docents and staff present 2-3 birds on the glove. Walk the Raptor Trail and enjoy our 37 species of raptors and other birds. You can try the scavenger hunt and search for Raptor trivia along the way. Create a Raptor craft. Write down your Raptor observations and add it to the Owl Forest Nature Notebook exhibit. Carolina Raptor Center's curriculum based programming informs everything we do. You'll find that a visit to CRC will meet many of the science-based goals included in your homeschool curriculum. And as an added bonus, families will enjoy $2 off regular admission and special programming at Carolina Raptor Center.

Heat Index Procedure and Guideline

When the heat index is over 95 degrees CRC will cancel all bird appearances, flight shows, and encounters. If you purchase tickets in advance, someone from our Visitor Services team will contact you directly about the cancelation. If you have any questions about this, please call our Visitor Center at (704) 875-6521 x.107. Please check our website the day of your visit for the most recent changes in program and event schedules. When shows are canceled other trail programs are put in place during the scheduled times of 1pm and 3pm on Saturdays and 1:30pm and 3pm on Sundays.

Why can't the birds work in the heat. More info.
