Piedmont Wildlife Center

Piedmont Wildlife Center inspires people to develop a positive lifelong connection with the natural world and encourages active engagement in conservation. We accomplish this through a community oriented approach to nature education, leadership development, and conservation science. 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.
Help 30 Students Become Earth Keepers
 
This project will send over 30 elementary and middle school children to a weekly after school program at seven NC elementary and middle schools during 2015-16. Children will be connected with nature through hands-on activities alleviating their fear of being outside, inspire them to help protect the environment, and to live within nature in a more sustainable way. The students will also learn to give back to the community by completing a service project at the end of the school year. project reportread updates from the field
Send 110 Children to Nature Camp
 
This project will send an additional 70 children to a week-long nature camp in Durham, Orange or Wake county of North Carolina in 2016. These children will meet the amazing teachers that are hidden in plants, shadows, and sunlight. They'll get dirty, have fun & take part in an incredible foray into the wild. Hands-on outdoor adventures will stimulate curiosity, awaken enthusiasm for the natural world and deepen their connection to nature, to themselves, to one another, & 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 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
