Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation
The Eagle Heights Wildlife Foundation, which specialises in birds of prey, receives annual financial support from the St. James Chapter NSDAR to sponsor Kayla, an American Bald Eagle whom they rescued and a baby American Bald Eagle, Chilcot, born at the center. The chapter arranges a Thanksgiving Day "treat" of fresh trout or salmon for Kayla and Chilcot. We assist where possible with fund-raising and publicity for the Centre.
The centre was opened in 1996 with around 30 birds. Their exciting displays and wonderful surroundings soon became popular and the centre rapidly expanded. They also have a newly built reptile house and now have various mammals on display, including meerkats and a serval.
American Museum in Britain
The chapter makes annual monetary contributions to benefit the "Conservation of the Folk Art Collection" at this internationally renown museum located in Bath.
The American Museum in Britain takes you on a journey through the history of America, from its early settlers to the 20th century. With its remarkable collection of folk and decorative arts, the museum shows the diverse and complex nature of American culture. The only museum of Americana outside the United States, the museum was founded to bring American history and cultures to the people of Britain and Europe.
Throughout the season there is a range of exciting events, including traditional American music concerts, kids activities, courses, lectures and Living History Events.
