Rehabilitated Bald Eagles Released at Mason Neck State Park

26 Aug 2017 5:10 PM | Thomas Blackburn (Administrator)

What an unforgettable sight!  On August 19, the Wildlife Center of Virginia released two rehabilitated Bald Eagles at the Park.  The young eagles had fallen out of their nests when they were too young to fly, and were cared for at the Center until they could be released.  About 100 people were there to witness Edward Clark Jr., the President and founder of the Center, release the eagles.  The Center chose Mason Neck State Park as the site for the eagle release because its habitat is ideal for eagles.  The principal reason the Park was founded in 1985 was to preserve Bald Eagle habitat.  Friends of Mason Neck State Park Board Members Randy Streufert and Mark Stephens were there to photograph the event.
