On Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., Carbon County Environmental Education Center presented a program at the Large Pavilion of Sweet Arrow Lake County Park featuring two species of live Eagles. 

More then 60 people of all ages were in attendance at the event.

“Rennie” their resident Bald Eagle and “Miss Charles” a Golden Eagle are birds that have been rehabilitated at the center after injuries.

Neither bird can return to the wild, so under permit of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Pennsylvania Game Commission, they serve as part of the center’s raptor education program.

The program's presenters answered questions and share information on the birds, birds that were referred to as "your birds".

This program was made possible with the help of a grant from the Schuylkill Area Community Foundation.

Also in the lake house was a display of wildlife art by local artist Dave Kintzel.
