...for the educational experience
Special thanks to Kathy Benner from the Juneau Raptor Center for bringing Liberty the bald eagle to the Floyd Dryden Middle School Science Club on Oct. 24. Liberty was beautiful and well behaved. It was especially nice to have Liberty come to a 21st Century Grant after-school program because students from all the grades were free to visit her. Kathy was an excellent speaker and very knowledgeable about eagles and raptor behavior. It was a great educational experience and the kids loved being so close to an eagle.
