Avian Conservation Center/Center for Birds of Prey - 4719 North Highway 17, Awendaw, SC 29429


Owls are creatures of the crepuscular hours – the transitional times of dusk and dawn. The timing of their activity along with their characteristic silent flight make them very difficult to see in the wild. Join us for an intimate adventure amidst the mysterious world of the owl. See a variety of species from around the world, including one of the largest, the Eurasian Eagle-owl. Enjoy flight demonstrations under the light of the moon and experience their silent flight as they soar just inches above your head. Take a tour of the Countess Paolozzi Owl Wood with one of our Educators and listen to owls vocalizing while learning about the individual species in our resident collection. In addition to the exciting bird interactions, guests enjoy a complimentary bar with beer, wine, and non-alcoholic refreshments as well as a catered meal of heavy hors-d’oeuvres. Price is $65 per person or $120 per couple. To purchase tickets, visit The Center for Birds of Prey is located at 4719 North Highway 17, Awendaw, SC 29429 just 16 miles north of downtown Charleston.
