Homeschool Days are powered by TIAA.



Join Carolina Raptor Center for our monthly Homeschool Days to celebrate learning outdoors and experience fun, educational activities for all students! Each month will highlight a new topic that focuses on a wide variety of STEM-related themes that will appeal to elementary, middle, and high school students. You'll find that a visit to CRC will meet many of the science-based goals included in any educational curriculum.
