July 27, 2021 (All day)

On July 27, 2011, the Wildlife Center of Virginia hosted the biggest Bald Eagle release in its history. 

On that day, we released five Bald Eagles – including the three “Rock Star” eagles from the Norfolk Botanical Garden nest – in front of a crowd of about 1,200 eagle fans from all across the country.

And thousands more joined that celebration online.

Ten years later, we’ll remember that event, with conversations with some of the individuals who were involved in that release.  Join us in the Moderated Discussion!

And we want you to share your memories, too!  Perhaps you were among those who sweltered at Berkeley Plantation – or maybe you joined us via the Internet.  Or maybe you have photos or videos of another eagle release – or of Buddy.  Please post eagle messages, memories, photos, and videos here on this virtual bulletin board. 

AND … on July 27 … we’ll also have a mini-online campaign, to raise funds to support the Center’s ongoing life-saving work with Bald Eagles.  Details later – although an Anonymous Donor has already stepped forward with a special Summer Challenge!
