Piedmont Wildlife Center is pleased to announce our Fall Programs!  We are offering nature experiences this autumn for people of all ages.  If you are a child, teen or adult, we have a program for you.  Please visit our new and redesigned Program page. The page is now located at the top bar of this site.

Our Fall programs for kids this year include two new offerings!  We now have Wild for a Day, a teacher workday program for kids on school holidays, and NightCrawl, a special after-dark  games event for kids and teens coming this October. We also have our regular Fall Camps for kids on fall and winter break and for track-out students from Wake county.  If you do not see a camp offered when your child is off school, please let us know.  We may be able to add a camp or teacher workday to our list.

Piedmont Wildlife Center’s Adult Nature and Survival classes are listed from now through December.  Some of these weekend classes are beginning to fill but we still have room available.  Sign up to learn more about fungi, animal tracking, medicinal plants, nature mentoring,  and many other topics. These experiential classes are designed for people of all levels of learning.  We welcome you to come, bring your questions and your curiosity, and steep your senses in the natural world.

We have now launched a new resource for everyone who shares a passion for learning about nature.  Piedmont Naturalists Journal is a new and expanding site where you can post your observations of the natural world and learn more about our local plants and animals.  The journal includes a Nature Mystery page which will be a frequently rotating set of challenges for all nature enthusiasts.  Come to solve our mystery or post one of your own!

We hope you come celebrate the beauty of Autumn with us this year!


Our online Orientation and Checklist provide new volunteers with important information, arranged by process and interest area. If you already volunteer at Piedmont Wildlife Center, you may also want to take a look at the list, because we have some new sources of information and tools that supplement or replace old systems.

One new option is to get volunteer news via your reader in addition to or instead of email. We recently told volunteers about a new opt-in email list; however, with these new pages, volunteers can instantly change their information preferences without having to contact Volunteer Services.

The list of options may seem overwhelming to some people, so rest assured that these tools continue to be options. You are always welcome to talk to us the old fashioned way, by email.

Just kidding! Stop by or call 919-489-0900 if you need our help.

To facilitate animal care, outreach and other volunteer activities, we are creating new pages with links to tools, forms and documentation. Our first page is for Raptor Care.

We are also building a new blog that streams our newest photos. We’ll link all of these sites to this one, so you can easily access them from the sidebar.

For more information about volunteering at Piedmont Wildlife Center, visit our volunteer page or email volunteer@piedmontwildlifecenter.org.
