Visitors agree to abide by the following code while visiting Carolina Raptor Center

Masks  recommended indoors and outdoors.


We are a birds first facility. The health and wellbeing of the birds along the Raptor Trail is our first priority. 

Help support the wellbeing of these avian ambassadors: 

  1. Respect their space. The birds have the right to feel safe in their homes.  

  2. Climbing on or going beyond barriers will endanger you and the birds, stay on the trail. 

  3. Embrace the sounds of nature. Birds are always listening to their environment and loud noises like shouting can be a sign of danger to them. 

  4. Keep pets at home. Birds see dogs as predators and can become agitated or frightened by them.  

  5. Maintain a healthy environment, do not smoke or litter.
