The staff and interns do an informative talk about eagles and wildlife. It's worth the few extra dollars to see the owls and eagles who are being rehabbed. Everyone is very knowledgeable and are enthusiastic about their work!

Cool place, well put together. Went in for the presentations during the bald eagle festival. Only complaint would be the giant pole in the presentation room that made seeing the screen really hard. Either way, really fun place to explore. Great to see the Eagles.
