Golden Eagle Release
July 29 @ 11:00 am - 11:30 am MDT
On Saturday, July 29th, we will have another eagle release at the C Overlook which will take place at 11am. This release is dedicated to Operation Underground Railroad, a nonprofit organization that works to rescue children from human sex trafficking all over the world.
The golden eagle is the considered the worlds eagle. It symbolizes courage and strength and believed in many cultures to be God’s messenger. It is a common belief among many native peoples that if you say your prayer on an eagle feather, that feather will take your prayer to God. With all of this symbolism, we feel that this is the perfect bird for this organization to release to bring awareness to their great mission and send hope and courage to all those who may be trapped or suffering.
The eagle they will be releasing was a juvenile golden eagle discovered trapped in a mine pit. It was dehydrated and starving. It is now fully recovered and ready to be returned back into the wild where it belongs.
