Join us this Saturday as Treehouse Wildlife Center will be releasing a bald eagle at Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge at 1 p.m. This bald eagle has been at Treehouse since last year after it was hit by a vehicle near Godfrey. The eagle suffered a puncture wound under its wing and also tested positive for mild lead poisoning. The eagle has thankfully made a full recovery and is ready to return to the wild!
