An Evening with Eagles

An Evening with Eagles, 7-9pm on January 10th at the Campbell Creek Science Center

Join the Bird Treatment and Learning Center and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for an informative evening all about Alaska’s eagles. Bird TLC will share stories of rescues, rehabilitation, and releases. Trained eagle handlers will answer questions about working with these magnificent birds and teaching the public about them. Meg Laws of the USFWS will make a presentation about the proposed guidelines for management of bald eagles should they be delisted, and the proposed regulatory definition of “Disturb” under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, which will clarify interpretation of this regulation. (Public comments on the proposed definition are due January 12th, and information on how and where to provide comments will be available at the event). The program will conclude with an educational presentation with a live bald eagle. For questions about the program, please call Bird TLC at 562-4852. For questions about delisting of the bald eagle or the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act, please contact Bruce Woods at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at 786-3695.
