Excellent! Noelle presented to 3 classes at our Montessori Childrens House and connected immediately with the children. She gave wonderful information about each animal and time for each child to touch the animals. The children were curious and enthralled during the entire presentation.

Amazing birthday party! Instructors were extremely knowledgeable about the animals and the center (like when the cabin was built). Rustic charm and woodsy environment. Received multiple comments from parents about how impressed they were with the quality of the party. Educational all the while keeping 18 1st graders engaged in the presentation. Would definitely recommend this party venue.

I have been at Piedmont for over 10 years now. I started off as a camper and am now a contracted educator. Some of the best memories I have growing up were made at PWC. Very knowledgeable staff, and all of the animals are well cared for. Leigh Farm Park is also a great place to walk around and enjoy nature. Highly recommend scheduling a program from here or just stopping by for a visit!

We had a great birthday party here! Kids ranged in age from 3-12, and everyone had a great time! Everyone loved seeing and learning about the Raptors, and Olive the opossum was feisty fun! Lots of things to check out in the cabin as well. Instructors were kind and knowledgeable. Thank you!

The 3rd-5th graders at our STEM and Arts summer camp absolutely LOVED Piedmont Wildlife Center! Their presentation was fun and engaging, and the campers really enjoyed being able to directly interact with the animals. Highly recommend!

We had our six year old's birthday party here. It was wonderful! They did a scavenger hunt for half an hour, then went inside the cabin and we got to meet several animal ambassadors. The kids learned about the rescue animals and answered the instructor's questions, and had time to ask their own. Everyone had fun and learned something too!

took our scouts there and they did a fantastic presentation and now our troop wants to go back and volunteer there. even though it was raining when we went the caretaker made it enough fun for 12 seven yearolds to sit still for an hour!

They have owls and a hawk in separate enclosures that you can view them in. They also have very nice trails to walk on through the woods.

We had an AMAZING time (grown ups and kids alike) at the Piedmont Wildlife Center. Our group of 3 families did a field trip where we got to spend time meeting and learning about all different animals (box turtle, corn snake, rabbit and opossum). The team at Piedmont were incredibly informative and engaging. They let the kids ask a million questions and shared lots of interesting facts. We then got to do a nature exploration hike in the woods where kids looked for bugs, moths, butterflies, and other insects. They loved it. A perfect day of learning and engagement. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
