One of my favorite places to go as a kid. A zoo with a much better conscious and a great mission. The birds are beautiful and fascinating to see as most of them you would never have the privilege of seeing otherwise. Great resources as well and overall a place everyone should go if you want to relax, have an easy hike, and see some amazing wildlife

My husband and I had more fun than our three year old. Everything is laid out nicely and the presenters were knowledgeable. Its about a mile walk and its cheap enough for a easy Saturday outing that allows you to get steps in fast if nothing else. There is a play area and picnic area if youre brining lunch as well.

These folks take great care of injured raptors from all around NC. Last week we picked up and released a great horned owl that they have been rehabbing for 3 months. It gives you goose bumps to see a wild creature released healthy back into the wild. It is also a fun place to visit and see many kinds of birds up close. These are birds that for whatever reason could not be released. To see them up close gives one a greater sense of how amazing these birds are and the importance of maintaining their wild habitats. This is an organization very worthy of your support. Visit, (it is really interesting), volunteer (they need help getting all the work done), or send them money (what organization doesn't need that).
