CRC comes to you!

Our educators – human and avian—can come to you to make your event take flight! CRC travels to events across North and South Carolina to introduce festival and fairgoers to our extra special birds of prey. Birds along with props and hands on activities help the public understand where raptors fit in their world and why humans have been fascinated with them for thousands of years.

Your first step is to complete the online Program Reservation form here.

What types of birds do you bring to Offsite Events?

The types of birds will vary depend on the type of program you choose. However, we usually bring a mix of owls, hawks and falcons. You may add an eagle to any program or event for an additional charge.
