American Wildlife Refuge and our education birds are excited to return to the North Carolina State Capital for their Fourth of July Celebration.
From 11am to 3pm, the State Capitol is hosting a free, fun-filled family event that offers musical performances and several hands-on activities for children to enjoy.
The day will host a ceremony that includes a reading from the Declaration of Independence and a wreath laying at the George Washington monument by the Sons of the American Revolution. Raleigh Concert Band will be performing. Bring your chairs and a picnic lunch! Ceremony begins outdoors at noon. And to celebrate America’s independence, the Capitol will have birthday cupcakes at 1:00, for as long as supplies last. Capitol will be open for self-guided tours from 11-3
