[ARCHIVED] The Wildlife Center of Virginia to Release Bald Eagle on Tuesday, July 30, at Long Island Park

Bald Eagle

Bald Eagle #19-1560 is ready for release! After additional exercise and pre-release blood work, the veterinary and rehabilitation staff declared that this eagle was ready to be returned to the wild. At this point, the state eagle biologist does not have any available transmitters, so the eagle will be released without one on Tuesday, July 30 at 11:00 a.m. at Long Island Park in Campbell County.

Wildlife Center President Ed Clark will release the eagle; the release is free and open to the public. If you’d like to attend, please RSVP to rsvp@wildlifecenter.org; please indicate if you’re attending the Long Island Park/Campbell County release or Friday’s Caledon release. There is one road in the park; attendees should take the road past the turn-ff to the boat landing to the park area at the end of the road. Restrooms are nearby.  [801 Railroad Ave]
