MARS is hosting the 11th annual Bald Eagle Festival. Our theme this year is "Ambassador Animals are Wildlife Mentors." Come and meet our newest ambassador. She is a Bald eagle named "Hy".
Gary Allan will be there with his wolf, Tundra.

There will be several interesting and educational displays and people available to answer any questions you may have.
Have you ever been up close and personal with a raptor? Here's your chance. Bird handlers will be on site with live raptors. Our Mascot "Phoenix" will be there too.
There will be a "Kids Zone" with various activities, Face Painting, Photo Contest sponsored by Phototech fotosource in Campbell River, gift items, food, wildlife specialists, educational birds.
