Take a step into the Eagle Aviary if you dare, have a conversation with Zlaty, the Golden Eagle, and tour Marcy’s Eagle Research Observatory. During this 30-minute encounter, participants will get “nose to beak” with some of our Bald and Golden Eagle residents and have an opportunity to take a photograph with one of these majestic creatures. The Eagle Encounter costs $35 members/$43/non-members (includes admission fee). Reservations are recommended. Limited to 6 participants. Please note tickets to the 11 am flight show are not required. Patrons will be seated on a first come/first served basis. Admission is free thanks to the sponsorship of Duke Energy/Piedmont Natural Gas.
