The Peregrine Fund's World Center for Birds of Prey will be announcing the winner of the name the Bald Eagle essay contest on Monday, June 20th at 11:00 am at the Velma Morrison Interpretive Center. Contest winners from four age categories will be announced, along with the grand prize winner. Each age category winner will be available to read their essay and prizes awarded for each category. Cake and refreshments will be available after the event.

The contest was open to all children visiting the facility. The juvenile Bald Eagle at the World Center for Birds of Prey is a two-year old female, and is originally from Wisconsin. The unreleasable eagle was recently relocated to The Peregrine Fund's education program and is available for public viewing in the courtyard area.

Just 15 minutes from downtown Boise on South Cole Road, The Peregrine Fund features a variety of eagles, hawks, falcons, and owls on display including the California Condor, Harpy Eagle, Peregrine Falcon, and Bateleur Eagle. Complete with interactive displays, multimedia shows, and live bird presentations, the facility provides visitors an insight to the world of birds of prey and the scientific work The Peregrine Fund is doing to conserve birds of prey around the world.
