After six months of extensive renovations, Wabasha’s National Eagle Center reopened its doors on June 3 to the public to continue educating visitors with its eagle ambassadors. The museum boasts its expanded eagle art and memorabilia collections, new eagle housing, and new eagle programming.
“We’re excited that we can help people understand the importance of eagles as a symbol,” National Eagle Center CEO Meg Gammage-Tucker said. “Every human being has some connection to eagles. We’re thrilled about the way that we can tell those different stories and remind people how they are pervasive in our everyday lives.”
The center first opened its doors in 2007 as a way to bring eagle admirers in the region together, and over the years has amassed bird residents and a multitude of eagle-centric art and memorabilia collections with the help of its fellow members.
