Most People In North Carolina Don’t Know This Unique Park Even Exists

Second chances are sometimes once in a lifetime – at least they are for the hundreds of raptors and other birds of prey that come to this unique ‘healing’ center in North Carolina each year. This park is one-of-a-kind and located within the Latta Nature Preserve, is one of the most visited outdoor attractions in the area, yet most people don’t even know the Carolina Raptor Center exists.
