About Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education

Mountain habitats are the theme of this education center, dedicated to exploring North Carolina’s wildlife. A part of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, the Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education is located in Pisgah National Forest next to the state’s largest trout hatchery—the Bobby N. Setzer State Fish Hatchery.  The Pisgah Center for Wildlife Education is open from 8:00AM to 4:45PM Monday–Saturday from April through November and Monday–Friday December through March. The Center and its activities are programs of the N.C.Wildlife Resources Commission and are supported through fees collected from hunters and anglers and through partnerships with the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s Sport Fish Restoration Program, and business and community groups. Admission is free, and all exhibits are universally accessible. The Center is closed on most state holidays.
