We went to the Eagle Center. We enjoyed the presentation put on about eagles by the volunteers. She was informative and entertaining. We liked seeing the eagles up close. The center has many exhibits and is very well displayed. I would recommend this center.

Just so much fun to see these magnificent birds so close and to learn about them. The staff was so knowledgeable and excited to share the information. We also sat through one of the sessions and learned so much. I would go back again.

There are extensive displays giving information on our National Bird, including live ones on display that were injured in the wild and have been rehabilitated. They are not able to be returned to the wild.
