    Join the experts in for the entire event or individual sessions for an in-depth look into the biology, ecology, issues and behaviors of eagles.

    The symposium begins at 7pm Friday night with a lecture and dessert reception followed by a night hike through the Garden.

    Kick of Saturday with a breakfast/lecture with all of the behind-the-Eagle-Cam team followed by a day of 45 minute presentations by national specialists. The culminating session is an intriguing panel discussion with all of the eagle specialists.

    The fun continues after the festival and symposium sessions with a BBQ dinner, photography opportunities, star-gazing, night hike and a campfire.

    If you still have not had enough, come back before sunrise Sunday morning for that beautiful early morning light photography time, enjoy breakfast followed bird-watching by boat or walk the Garden.
