Piedmont Wildlife Center

We foster healthy connections among people, wildlife and nature through nature education, wildlife conservation and a wildlife care hotline. Our goal is to connect or reconnect people to nature and to teach them how they can contribute in a positive way to improve their environment for humans as well as the native flora and fauna with which we share our environment.

This project will send over 40 children to a week-long nature camp in Durham & Wake counties of North Carolina in 2014-15. These children will meet the amazing teachers that are hidden in plants, shadows, sunlight, and stars. They'll get dirty, have fun and take part in an incredible foray into the wilds. Hands-on outdoor adventures will stimulate curiosity, awaken enthusiasm for the natural world and will deepen their connection to nature, to themselves, to one another, and their surroundings. project reportread updates from the field
Help Save the Box Turtles!

Box turtles are becoming scarce due to habitat destruction, car accidents, and the pet industry. Some studies show that box turtles moved from their home range do not survive. We also do not have a lot of information about box turtles such as home range size, food habits, and reproduction. Our study will help biologists better understand box turtles and help to conserve them for future generations. project reportread updates from the field
