NC Birding Trail

Chatham County, NC


From our vast coastline to our high mountain peaks, North Carolina is home to a diversity of habitats that support hundreds of bird species and other wildlife. The driving trail connects sites across the state providing a common thread to tie together bird watching, wildlife viewing, and nature-based tourism for all to enjoy.

The CVB is a certified Birder-Friendly business, with many sites on the North Carolina Birding Trail. NC Birding Trail sites in Chatham County are located at Jordan Lake State Recreation Area, White Pines Nature Preserve, and Jordan Lake Education State Forest.
