Only as a child's awareness and reverence for the wholeness of life are developed can his humanity to his own kind reach its full development.  – Rachel Carson

You’ll love coming to us!

By far the best way to experience the raptors of Carolina Raptor Center is by coming to see them in their natural habitat. Our location inside Latta Nature Preserve is a perfect setting to get kids out of the classroom and up close and personal with nature.

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