It’s finally here!

 Do you feel like winter will never end?  Do you have the winter blahs?  Suffering from LDS (Light deficiency syndrome)?  Cabin fever?  Well we have just what the doctor ordered—a chance to get out of the house into the fresh air and enjoy one of the area’s most popular Spring events—WORLD EAGLE DAY!!


On Sunday, March 24, The World Bird Sanctuary will celebrate World Eagle Day.  In addition to our national symbol, the Bald Eagle, this is your opportunity to see a number of other species of Eagles from around the world!  

Mark your calendars—World Eagle Day is March 24, 10:00 to 4:00!!
 Meet an Eagle up close--bring your cameras!
World Eagle Day is one of our most popular events.  It’s a chance for everyone to get out of the house after a long cold winter and enjoy the outdoors with us.  Be prepared to celebrate everything Eagle—from close-up encounters with eagles from around the world to having an eagle soar overhead--close enough to feel the draft from its wing beats.
 Have your photo taken with a Bald Eagle
There will be sing-a-longs, face painting, crafts for the kids, flight demonstrations by our free flying eagles, the opportunity to have your photo taken with a Bald Eagle, and much more. 
 Face painting is just one of the kid friendly activities
As a special treat this year members of the Comanche Nation will discuss the unique importance of eagles to Comanche culture.

So, mark your calendars.

Be prepared to spend the day with us learning about these magnificent creatures.  Bring a picnic lunch, or take advantage of food and beverages from our concession stand. 

Dress for the weather and be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes as there is much to see, and most of the events will be outdoors.

As always, admission and parking are FREE!

For the safety of our birds and our other guests, please no pets.
