Home is where the habitat is. Create your own wildlife habitat right in your own backyard. Registration fee covers daily Raptor Trail admission, plus applicable sales taxes. CRC Members receive free admission, but we encourage you to register in advance (use the discount code provided via email or contact Visitor Services)

Here's the day's itinerary:

11:00am - 3:00pm - Browse vendors and non-profits that can help you enjoy the great outdoors while learning how to make your environs more friendly to creatures of all kinds. Build a bug hotel, become a pollinator, make a seed bomb, and learn how to attract migrating butterflies.

3:00 - 4:00pm - Join our guest speaker from the NC Wildlife Federation in the Festival Area who will tell you step-by-step how to build your own backyard habitat. You’ll even take home some of the tools.
