Bring the Wild Alive: Birds of Prey

Join us as we meet and greet live birds of prey, and learn about their lives and habitats.

Lowcountry Raptors goal is to help the human part of the natural community learn to value, understand, and honor the role of wildlife while preserving the natural and cultural heritage of the Lowcountry.

"This we know: the earth does not belong to us; we belong to the earth. All things are connected like blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the children of the earth. Humanity does not weave the web of life; we are merely strands in it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves."
- Attributed to Chief Seattle
