SCOTLAND NECK, NORTH CAROLINA  •  Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Center  •  Ongoing

Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Center operates the world's largest collection of waterfowl, including many rare and endangered species. The 8 acre avian breeding preserve in Scotland Neck, North Carolina is now home to over 170 species of birds-- more than half of the world’s known species of ducks, geese and swans--along with cranes, pheasants, parrots and many other birds.

Sylvan Heights has now embarked on a new and exciting mission--providing conservation-oriented programs and avian exhibits to the public. Building on an adjacent 18-acre property owned by the North Carolina Zoological Society, the new Waterfowl Park & Eco-Center has been open to the public since October 7, 2006.

Scotland Neck is only a few miles from the Roanoke River, an environmentally protected waterway that attracts many thousands of migrating ducks, geese and swans to the North Carolina coastal plain.  The cypress-tupelo swamp forests and wetlands surrounding Scotland Neck are a wintering home for many bird species, and provide opportunities for waterfowl, raptor and songbird observation. In fact, this area was named one of the top 500 most important bird areas by the American Bird Conservancy Guide.
