Nature Education: Evening with Carolina Waterfowl Rescue




Leisure University: Natural Education with HAWK (Habitat And Wildlife Keepers) featuring Carolina Waterfowl Rescue's Jennifer Gordon.

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue (CWR) is non profit 501 (c)3 wildlife rescue organization located in Charlotte, NC. CWR is run by federally-licensed migratory bird rehabilitators specializing in waterfowl. They take in over 1000 birds a year covering close to 40 different wild bird species. CWR is an all-volunteer group that donates their time, money and expertise to helping North Carolina’s birds in need.

Come hear their amazing story of rescue and rehabilitation! We will also have environmental literature, news and upcoming events, recycling collection and our "almost award winning" raffle for great prizes. Network and meet like-minded environmental enthusiasts, share some refreshments and bring a friend. "Like" us on Facebook!  Hope to see you there!

Carolina Waterfowl Rescue is an all volunteer 501©3 non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of Migratory Birds. We also run an adoption program to assist domestic animals placed in wild habitats, where they would not survive. Our organization cannot exist without the help of people who volunteer their time, money, and resources.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
