Garden of Eagles 2018 Calendar

For nine consecutive years, committed and talented volunteers have created The Garden of Eagles, a beautiful calendar that has won praise from eagle lovers all across the country – and around the world.

The Wildlife Center is now taking pre-orders for the 2018 Garden of Eagles calendar! Pre-order deadline is Monday, October 16 at 4:00 p.m. Eastern.   

This 11” x 17”, 12-month calendar is 48 pages and includes more than 100 full-color photographs.

Included in the 2018 Garden of Eagles calendar will be:

  • Photos of Bald Eagles and nests across Virginia, including several generations of the Norfolk Bald Eagle family. There's a special report on "HK",  who was treated at the Wildlife Center in September 2017;
  • An update on Buddy, who celebrates a milestone hatch-day on April 27, 2018. Buddy is the Bald Eagle rescued from the Norfolk Botanical Garden nest in 2008 and now a permanent resident at the Wildlife Center;
  • Several popular eagle cam stars, including  "Harriet" and "M15" from Southwest Florida, as well as the Hays eagle cam stars near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
  • A special look at some of the Center's non-feathered patients -- Black Bears!
  • A message from Center President Ed Clark … and more!

Proceeds from the sale of the 2018 Garden of Eagles calendar will be used for a special project at the Wildlife Center -- a redesign and replacement of the roofs of two of the Center's eagle flight pens and other updates. These pens are where eagles and other large raptors are exercised before they are released. As Center President Ed Clark has said, "You have been the 'wind beneath our wings'; now, you can be the roof over our heads!" A portion of the proceeds also will benefit The Center for Conservation Biology at the College of William and Mary.

Order online by visiting the Wildlife Center’s Shop

Single calendars are $28.00; multiple calendars can be purchased for $24.00 each. Some supporters are including an EXTRA contribution – Buddy Bucks – as part of their calendar orders. These additional contributions will be earmarked for the special raptor roof replacement project and the Center's ongoing work with Bald Eagles. 

Please feel free to round-up your total … or add something extra on the checkout page! For calendars shipped to international addresses, please add $20 on the “checkout” page.

CONFIRMATION: If you order a calendar[s] online, you will receive an automated confirmation from PayPal quite soon after you finish your transaction -- usually within a minute or two. This will confirm that your transaction has been successfully completed.

Each order is also reviewed by the Wildlife Center staff -- checking for problems, resolving questions, etc. This is a more time-consuming process, and a large number of orders will be placed. Orders are reviewed in the order in which they were received. These transactions are also being acknowledged by an email from the Wildlife Center.

Purchase In-person

A very limited number of calendars will be available later this fall when calendars are printed. Stay tuned!

Mail Orders

Copies of the 2018 Garden of Eagles calendar may also be pre-ordered by mailing a check to the Wildlife Center of Virginia. Order form.

Please note that all pre-orders must be received by the deadline. Telephone orders will not be accepted.
