Carolina Raptor Center Inc
January 12, 2012

Not only does Carolina Raptor Center provide a forest of beautiful birds of prey to see, it also provides exciting and informative educational programs for bird lovers of all ages. For those who are especially interested in their ultimate behind-the-scenes mission of rehabilitating injured birds for return to the wild, there are additional tours of the rehabilitation center, a photo blog of the feathery rehab patients, and myriad opportunities to volunteer. Becoming a member of the Carolina Raptor Center offers free admission to the center for a year, discounts in the gift shop and more, all while helping the Center prove to its grant-funding organizations how many people heartily support its mission.
