American Eagle Day commemorates the anniversary of the bald eagle’s selection as our national symbol on the Great Seal in 1782. Today, it serves as a reminder of the bald eagle’s status as a conservation success story and celebrates the eagle’s triumphant return from near extinction.
To celebrate American Eagle Day 2021, we are partnering with the Ameican Eagle Foundation to offer birds of prey programs. You will have an opportunity to meet a live bald eagle ambassador! Following the program, participants can take a hike with a Seven Islands Park Ranger accompanied by an Avian Care Specialist from American Eagle Foundation. Learn firsthand about Seven Islands Birding Park and why it is the ideal habitat for birds of prey including the bald eagle. All Guided Hike participants will receive an American Eagle Day commemorative water bottle and sticker!
There are two time slots, so please sign up for the hike you plan to attend and make sure to come early for the birds of prey program.
This is a free program, but you will have the opportunity to make donations to the American Eagle Foundation and Friends of Seven Islands.
