Eagles and Whales on June 23

Freedom the Eagle

The Port Townsend Marine Science Center is partnering with Puget Sound Express and other area businesses for a  “Freedom Weekend Package Getaway” for the whole family on June 23, 2012.

At 2pm, you’ll have the opportunity to view a majestic bald eagle up close at a presentation given by Jeff Guidry at the Port Townsend Marine Science Center’s Natural History Exhibit in Fort Worden State Park. Admission is $5, $3 for kids and free to Port Townsend Marine Science Center (PTMSC) members.

From the moment Guidry saw the emaciated baby eagle with broken wings, his life was changed. For weeks he worked with the staff at Sarvey Wildlife Care Center, tending to the grievously injured bird. Miraculously, she recovered. They named her “Freedom” and Guidry became her devoted caretaker. Though Freedom would never fly, she had Jeff as her wings.

In association with this event, we will be offering 15% discount on our 4 Hour Whale Watching cruise, leaving at 9 a.m. (this is one hour earlier than usual) at Point Hudson Marina on Saturday, June 23 and returning by 1 p.m.—back just in time for the presentation. Accommodations are available at the Bishop Victorian Hotel and the Washington Hotel. All three businesses are offering a 15% discount. Just use the code EAGLE. Children are welcome.
