The Center for Birds of Prey

Zerve Seller: BirdsofPrey

The Center for Birds of Prey offers visitors a unique insight into the lives and impressive adaptations of nearly 50 species of birds of prey including eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kites and vultures.
 
Wild birds are among the world's most illuminating sentinel species. Birds are numerous, conspicuous, diverse, widespread and particularly sensitive to environmental changes. The ecological status of wild birds directly reflects the condition of the ecosystem and biodiversity as a whole. Environmental issues that impact wild bird populations often have potential human health implications as well.
 
Whether you are a birder, a photographer or simply want to spend the day outdoors, we invite you to explore the natural history of birds of prey through guided walking tours, personalized environmental education programs and striking free-flight demonstrations.
 
All proceeds from your admission go to support the Avian Conservation Center, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization.

My wife and I recently visited The Center for Birds of Prey and were very impressed with the presentation. Our tour guide, Megan, was very informative and entertaining when telling us about the birds she introduced us to. We also enjoyed the in flight demonstrations...the Peregrine Falcon demo being our favorite. I would highly recommend this activity to anyone interested in birding. It's a fantastic place with lots of interesting and beautiful birds.

Being an amateur bird photographer, and nature buff, I enjoyed this visit immensely! I was impressed with the staff, conditions the birds were kept, and overall objectives of the Center. The "bird flight" exhibition was outstanding! Great explanation with every step and bird characterization. You could immediately see the staff was really immersed in what they were doing and the bonding with the bird. Also impressive was the Eagles in the "rear" pens. I could spend all day watching these magnificent birds!

I feel the Center really needs to put more advertising out there to make everyone aware of their presence and objectives. Maybe a TV slot (I'm sure one of the stations wold do the slot gratis), and a special in the Weekly paper that circulates the Charleston area. I've lived here 8 years, and if I hadn't seen the brochure (only one left) at Caw Caw Interpretive Center, I would never know about this organization.

Cudos to all who work and volunteer at this wonderful place...I will return ...for sure!!!

This is a great local day trip and break from the beach. Traveled from Kiawah, an easy mornining commute. The staff are enthusiastically friendly and knowledgeable. Starts with an informative walking tour, followed by an awesome flight demonstration and ends with a free walk around the large campus. I would strongly recommend for bird enthusiasts, families and nature folks. The pricing is fair and amenities are modest, but practical.

Our party consisted from 4 years of age to 72.

Bonus, north 4 miles is a free$$$ red wolf reservation.

Within 5 miles are many restaurants and other creature features.
