Welcome Center Update!

The Grey Snow Eagle House Welcome and Education Center construction is still underway. Due to some unforeseen circumstances we are opening later than we originally planned, but the wait will be worth it! The building will house an auditorium that has been designed for free flight shows, a conference room, a break room, two offices, and a gallery. Once opened, we will be offering free flight shows for school groups during the week and exciting themed free flight shows during certain weekends. Below are just a few of the progress pictures and sneak peak pictures from inside the building. Make sure to follow our Facebook for updates.
