Welcome to The Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center at Radnor Lake
There’s a new destination at Radnor Lake State Natural Area and it’s really for the birds. Constructed as a boardwalk, nestled in the natural area, the wheelchair accessible facility provides educational programming, allows “up close” observation of non-releasable birds of prey and offers a bird’s eye view of the surrounding hillside and wildlife.
On Thursday, August 6th the first EAGLE was transferred to the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center at Radnor Lake.
Radnor Lake Ranger Dustin Crowell and SIR Alex Kenney traveled to the American Eagle Foundation headquarters in Pigeon Forge, TN to transfer our first eagle from our partners at the American Eagle Foundation. Special thanks to the American Eagle Foundation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife and Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency for their assistance in permitting and transfer of this new addition to Radnor Lake!
We hope you will visit soon!
Regular Operating Hours for the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center:
Saturday: 1pm-Sunset Wednesday: 7am-1pm
To minimize stress on the birds, initial public hours are limited to a two-day-a-week schedule. In addition, pets are not permitted on the boardwalk at the Barbara J. Mapp Aviary Education Center.
We appreciate your patience as we welcome the birds to their new home.
