Rescued bald eagle to be release at Carpenter Nature Center on Wednesday

A bald eagle rescued during a snowstorm in March will be released at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 24, at Carpenter Nature Center in Hastings.

The eagle was injured in what was believed to be a territorial dispute.

Three Carpenter Nature Center staff members and volunteers drove to the house where the eagle had been seen and eventually rescued it.

It was nursed back to health at the University of Minnesota's Raptor Center and staff there have concluded the eagle is ready to be released into the wild.

The public is invited to attend the release.

Carpenter Nature Center is located at 12805 St. Croix Trail in Hastings. They can be reached at 651-437-4359.
