Piedmont Wildlife Center, at 364 Leigh Farm Road, Durham, connects people and nature through outdoor camps, school programs and more.
They care for a number of animal ambassadors, including snakes, owls, turtles, hawks, rabbits, and more.
The in-person programs they normally host are happening right now, but they’re holding their first ever drive-thru (or, as they say, “fly-thru”) event!
Fly-Thru Raptor Meet and Greet: Back to School Edition will take place on Thursday, August 13th, 2020, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
You can drive through, and see some of the raptors up close and get your questions about birds of prey answered.
All this will be from the safety of your car.
Come and get your “show-and-tell” pictures of what you did this summer, play Camo Critters from your car, and interact with the Raptor Team all while learning about local NC wildlife.
They will have a representative from ecoEXPLORE attending to give you tips on how to stay connected to nature through their program this coming school year.
Suggested donation of $10 or more goes directly to our wildlife ambassadors to provide medical care and food.
The event is free, but with a suggested donation of $10.
Piedmont Wildlife Center is an educational facility that has been hit hard, as they have had to cancel all of their in-person programming. Your support ensures that their raptors and other ambassadors will be able to continue to educate people for generations to come.
