Program Descriptions


Fly By


There's nothing quite like feeling the rush of air as a bird flies over your head! Experience this exhilarating moment during our Fly Bys, where a free-flighted avian ambassador shows off the natural behaviors that make them special. The birds starring in Fly Bys vary. Fly Bys last roughly 15 minutes.

Keeper Chat


Chat with a member of our expert staff about how they work with birds at the Carolina Raptor Center. Topics vary by day, so you might watch a trainer work with an avian ambassador one day and hear from a member of our hospital team about the tools they use for rehabilitation the next. Keeper Chats last approximately 20 minutes.

Meet a Raptor


What actually is a raptor? Find out with a member of our education staff while meeting one of the raptors who call the Carolina Raptor Center home. This seated educational program is engaging for all ages and provides the opportunity to learn more about our avian ambassadors in a unique setting. Meet a Raptor programs last approximately 20 minutes.
