The front entrance is marked by a beautiful eagle relief sculpture. The glass wall behind the brick is the lobby and gift shop areas.Here is a close up of the sculpture.The back side of the lobby is also glass. In this picture you can also see part of the second floor balcony which looks out over the river.The eagles have their own room with windows that open up and over look the river, a visitor viewing area, and a back room area to take care of their feeding and medical needs. The eagle area is separated from the lobby by a glass wall.Angel is one of 3 current resident educational eagles. Angel is about 9 years old, Columbia is the youngest of the 3 at about 6 and Harriet is about 26 years old. All three came from Wisconsin. We were told that the center is currently working on trying to get a golden eagle to compliment the current educational birds.
The center is having their grand opening celebration on September 29th. I know that Michelle and I will be there and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is interested in eagles.
