Well, this is new for me, since I'm all about piggies. But I was taking boxes to the side of the road this afternoon, and I saw something moving. It's a baby rabbit, and it has to be maybe a few weeks old (photo attached). I plan on taking him to the nature center tomorrow morning, but what do I do for the night? He doesn't want any hay or veggies, so I'm thinking maybe critical care? I would leave him outside for hopefully his mother to find him, but we have a lot of predators around here, and he's sure to be eaten. Right now, I have him in a huge soft cat carrier with some blankets and hay, but he doesn't have any interest. Is there anything I should do?

I'd get him to the nature center today if at all possible, or call them and ask if there's a wildlife rehabber near you who will take him. The survival rate for wild baby rabbits in captivity is abysmally low, so the sooner you can get him to someone who's experienced in caring for him, the better chance he'll have.
