Take a walk on the wild side at Carolina Raptor Center's Raptor Trail.
Catch wonder by the tail with our formal and informal education programs. Children 3 to 93 will delight the science and natural history of 38 raptor species and how they have inspired human invention.
Staff and volunteers at this hidden hospital in the woods treats over 900 injured and orphaned birds a year – more than any other US raptor center. Over 70% are released back into the wild!

Annual Gifts to Carolina Raptor Center
Carolina Raptor Center is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization (tax ID #56-1349170) that relies on the generosity of individuals, corporations and foundations to advance its mission. By joining our group of loyal donors and members, you are providing vital resources that ensure we deliver outstanding medical care to injured/orphaned raptors, quality STEM education to our youth, and valuable visitor experiences to the community, all while helping conserve our environment.
Annual Fund Gifts support our operating budget to conserve raptors through our rehabilitation, education and visitor programs. You can make a one-time or recurring donation (weekly, monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually). Monthly recurring gifts of $5 or more also receive an Annual Pass.
You can also give a gift In Honor or In Memory of someone. We'll send a card to the name and address you provide. Don't worry- we won't tell them how much you donated, just that you were generous.
