Discover the world’s largest collection of rare and endangered waterfowl. Sylvan Heights gives visitors the opportunity to see over 2,500 birds from around the world, from ducks, geese and swans, to parrots, pheasants, cranes, owls, toucans, flamingos and much more.
Visitors of all ages and interests can walk through continentally-themed aviaries, experiencing the diverse beauty, color and sound of these creatures. For an even more interactive experience, guests can feed parakeets and flamingos in the park’s Landing Zone exhibit. An amazing handicapped accessible tree house overlooks the natural wetlands, and the Beaver Pond Blind allows visitors to get closer to North Carolina’s native wildlife. We offer regularly scheduled educational programming and special events. Tours are self-guided, but guided tours are also available by appointment. Call for the details.
