The Topsham Public Library and Cathance River Education Alliance are joining together to co-sponsor a very special event.
Wind Over Wings: The Debut of Bald Eagle Lady Grace
Saturday, October 25th, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
Held at the Topsham Public Library, 25 Foreside Road, Topsham, Maine.
Come meet Lady Grace as she makes her Wind Over Wings program debut! This Bald Eagle, with a serious injury to her wing, has been cared for by Wind Over Wings for 2 years and she’s ready to step up onto Hope’s arm to meet us.
Our event will feature the renowned and exceptionally talented Wind Over Wings founder Hope Douglas, Bald Eagle Lady Grace, her namesake (92-year-old Grace Rowe), and the diverse support team who have all come together to rescue and care for this injured eagle. Featured also will be the Golden Eagle “Sky,” and the Eastern Screech and Saw-whet. The story of resilience and courage of Lady Grace is inspirational; each of Hope’s birds has shown incredible grace as they’ve persevered through tragic events.
This program is FREE and family friendly. All interested members of the public are invited to attend. Come early to assure seating; we’re expecting a big crowd!

“The Bald Eagle has made a remarkable comeback from near extinction due to DDT and habitat loss; but people have brought them back. These amazing birds are true survivors. Lady Grace's story is one of strength, courage, and trust. Imagine the wonder and excitement of being just a few feet away from the symbol of our country! “
