American Eagle Foundation has a longstanding history in the conservation of bald eagles and other birds of prey. Over the course of over 30 years, they have released 180 bald eagles back into the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. The conservation efforts of citizens, lawmakers, and organizations like us have culminated in the bald eagle’s triumphant comeback from the brink of extinction. Recent studies have found that the population has quadrupled since the last count!

The UT Arboretum Society presents the American Eagle Foundation for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes glimpse into the lives of our resident raptors, including our charismatic bald eagle ambassadors! As Dr. Miller guides you on a virtual tour, you will learn about eagle and other raptors’ roles within our ecosystem, how AEF cares for them, and how we can help protect them.

Our presenter: While completing her PhD in literature at Auburn University, Dr. Miller started volunteering at a local raptor facility in 2012. She decided to pursue raptor education as a full-time career upon graduating and joined American Eagle Foundation’s team in 2018. As an educator and falconer, she hopes to share her partnership with raptors as a force for good, inspiring a passion for avian conservation in the hearts of generations to come.
