On May 5, 2012, Buddy the Bald Eagle made his debut off-site appearance at the 2012 Norfolk Botanical Garden Eagle Festival. Buddy made two appearances that day — the first inside with Wildlife Center president Ed Clark at the eagle symposium, where Ed spoke about Buddy’s arrival at the Center in 2008 and how it changed the way the Center operates. Buddy's second appearance was outside where the festival was held. Buddy appeared in front of about 1000 people — and did quite well for his first time out!
