Wildlife Center President Ed Clark will release the eagle at Taps Field, Berkeley Plantation on Wednesday, November 22 at 1:00 p.m. The release is open to the public; please let us know if you're coming by emailing RSVP@wildlifecenter.org. Please indicate that you will be attending the Berkeley Plantation release along with the number of people in your party.
Please visit the Berkeley Plantation website for general directions. Alternatively, use Google/MapQuest to obtain the best directions from your location to the Berkeley address:
12602 Harrison Landing Road
Charles City, Virginia 23030
There is a directional sign at the front of Berkeley Plantation’s driveway. Rather than taking a slight right onto Harrison Landing (which leads to the main Berkeley Plantation mansion), bear left toward Westover Plantation. Take an immediate right onto a gravel driveway [if you pass the sign that notes that Westover Plantation is two miles ahead, you have missed the turn to Berkeley].
Follow the gravel road straight back for 1.1 miles. The parking lot will be on your right.
The release will take place rain or shine. If storms [with lightning] threaten the release plans, we'll post an update here and will email those who have sent their RSVP.
