Visit The Elk?With Audubon

Trips To Visitor Center Set For Sept. 18

September 7, 2013
By Jennifer Schlick - Program Director , The Post-Journal

Every Discovery Walk at Audubon includes a visit with Liberty, our non-releasable Bald Eagle. The children are always fascinated by her and full of questions. Once I've answered their questions, I ask one of my own: "How many of you have ever seen a Bald Eagle in the wild?" Several hands go up. It is now common to see Bald Eagles in our area; it was not when I was the age of these students. It took habitat restoration, conservation laws and reintroduction to bring the populations back up to sustainable levels. With some groups, Liberty becomes the jumping off point for discussion of other species whose populations have fluctuated over the last few centuries.
