Take a breath.

Do you hear that? The high-pitched whistling of eagles in the trees, a majestic – and once highly endangered – species.
Eagle Passage, a world-class habitat showcasing several bald eagles, is opening Aug. 3-4 at Northwest Trek. It tells the conservation story of this proud species from near extinction to robust wild populations.

Telling the story
(with your help)

These eagles, unable to survive in the wild, will be cared for at the wildlife park as regal ambassadors for their species. They will have homes in a magnificent habitat near the park entry that uses existing trees and vegetation, surrounded by a 30-foot mesh.

Discover their stories and make your pledge to protect wildlife through an interactive digital station.

Walk the passage
through an eagle habitat.

A walkway through the meshed habitat immerses you in these birds’ habitat. You’ll see them above and on either side, perched in branches, snags or towering evergreens – just as they would in the wild. Then crawl into a life-sized eagle “nest” or spread your arms against an eagle’s wingspan.

The Northwest Trek Foundation raised $500,000 to finance the brand-new exhibit.
