Freedom Flight

On Veterans Day (Nov. 11, 2018) we released our juvenile Bald Eagle, Freedom.

Freedom came to us starving and unable to fly due to weakness and broken feathers. Our dedicated staff and volunteers nursed him back to health; working with him to get him strong enough to soar again!

Over 110 people came to witness this patriotic act. Director Paul Strasser released Freedom above our elk pond.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us by attending the event, donating money and/or fish (that were fed to Freedom), and have ever shared our information. We couldn't help wildlife without your help!

Also a huge thank you to Cookies by Design on Montgomery Rd. They donated beautiful bald eagle cookies that were sold during our release event!
