An eagle in the Library!

Our Elementary Program for Tuesday, July 20th featured Harriet (a bald eagle) and her handler from the National Eagle Center.  It was a fascinating presentation!  Did you know that an eagle can exert up to 400 lbs. pressure with each of its talons?  Did you know that it can dive for prey at 100 miles an hour?  We learned these and so many other incredibly interesting things about our beautiful and amazing national bird! 


We thank the Chosen Valley Community Foundation for making this program possible through a generous grant.
