Special Event
Bald Eagle Release
West Alton, Missouri



Location: Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, West Alton, MO

Date: Monday, September 3, 2018

Time: 2 pm

Description: The TreeHouse Wildlife Center will release a Bald Eagle at the Audubon Center at the Riverlands in West Alton, Missouri on Labor Day, September 3, 2018 at 2:00 pm. Dr. Paul Myer DVM and owner of Hawthorne Animal Hospital in Glen Carbon, Illinois will have the honor of releasing the eagle. Dr. Myer saved the eagle’s life by performing surgery on its leg after being rescued and brought to the TreeHouse in 2017. The Angel Fund covered the cost of the surgery.

In 2016, Hawthorne Animal Hospital created the Angel Fund to improve the quality of life for animals. The fund is a 501c3 non-profit managed by the Veterinary Care Foundation (VCF). Hawthorne pays a fee to VCF, which allows 100% of donations made to go toward patient care. Hawthorne utilizes the funds to support the community by providing “cradle to grave” healthcare for six local canine officers and supporting the TreeHouse Wildlife Center in rehabilitation efforts like the eagle being released this Labor Day.

This is a free and public event. Please join us this Labor Day to celebrate the return of a Bald Eagle to the wild
