12:30 pm – 5:30 pm
Field Trip 

Come visit the National Eagle and Wildlife Property Repository, operated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and see this one-of-a-kind facility. The National Eagle and Wildlife Property Repository is located at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge northeast of Denver, Colorado.

The National Eagle Repository portion of this facility provides a central location for the receipt, storage, and distribution of bald and golden eagles that are found dead, and their parts. The eagles, and their parts, are shipped to qualified Native Americans for use in religious Indian ceremonies. Witness the eagle evaluation process during your visit, and learn how to identify bald eagles from golden eagles, and the cultural significance of the eagle to Native Americans.

During your visit you will also see the National Wildlife Property Repository portion of this unique facility. Through law enforcement operations the U.S, Fish and Wildlife Service confiscates animals, animal parts, and products created from them that have been illegally imported into this country. Learn and see the global aspects of illegal wildlife trade and the many, many species (both exotic and native) involved in this trade from all parts of the world, as well as, the effects the illegal trade has on our wildlife resources.

Cost: The tour is free but you will need to provide your own transportation to and from the Repository
Trip Limited to 30 people
