National Eagle Center, 50 Pembroke Ave., is dedicated to educating the public about these magnificent raptors. Bald and golden eagles are the stars of classroom presentations where you can learn more about the injuries that brought individual avian “ambassadors” to the center. Interactive exhibits give insight into such eagle characteristics as weight, visual acuity and talon strength.
