“Topaz” on exhibit at Lindsay Wildlife Museum
SF Bay Area’s Premier Wildlife Rehabilitation and Nature Education Center debuts a Golden eagle
What: A visitor favorite in public programming at Lindsay Wildlife Museum, Topaz, the resident female Golden eagle is set to make her debut as an exhibit hall animal ambassador this weekend.
Where: Lindsay Wildlife Museum, 1931 First Ave., Walnut Creek, adjacent to Larkey Park.
When: Topaz is now on exhibit.
Interesting Facts: This Golden eagle was found in the Lake Tahoe area, near Lake Topaz, for which she is named. She is unable to fully extend her wing, which prevents sustained flight. Animal experts at the museum determined that Topaz is a female because of her size—11 pounds! Locally, the nearby Diablo Range is home to one of the highest concentrations of wintering Golden eagles ever recorded.
Cost: Free with museum admission. $8.50 for adults, $7.50 for seniors 65+ and $6.50 for children 2 -17, and admission is free for members and children under 2 years old.
