National Eagle Center Behind the Scenes Tours

Get a unique look at how we care for the National Eagle Center’s ambassadors!

What to Expect

    • You will be paired with an Avian Care staff member who will lead your group through our Behind-the-Scenes area, answer all your questions, and share with you how the National Eagle Center cares for our ambassadors.
    • Your Behind-the-Scenes group will receive free admission to the National Eagle Center for the day of your experience.

    The Behind-the-Scenes tour may include:

    • Get to see, up close, an avian care staff member conduct a training session with an ambassador.
    • Help create enrichment for, at least one, of our ambassadors.

    Experiences may differ based on time of year, Avian Flu status, and your group, but we will always work to tailor your experience to your group’s preferences to ensure you have a memorable and fun time!
