Our Tennessee Mountain Home

Al, Challenger, Dolly, Bob Hope



We are blessed to have the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) headquarters located at Dolly Parton's popular DOLLYWOOD family entertainment park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

The AEF eagle center is located on Dollywood property in view of the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains. It consists of the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary aviary exhibit, Wings of America birds of prey show and Eagles' Nest gift shop located on the park, as well as our national corporate offices and complex of eagle care, rehabilitation and breeding facilities located off park.

In April 1991, Dolly Parton, Al Cecere, and Bob Hope participated in the Grand Opening Ceremony for Eagle Mountain Sanctuary by releasing a Bald Eagle into the habitat.

Our spectacular Wings of America birds of prey show is presented in an open-air theater located on the Dollywood park. It features an up-close look at eagles, hawks, falcons, owls and vultures...some in dramatic free-flying form. The show can be seen several times a day from early April through late October.

Habitat nest

Many of our permanently disabled Bald Eagles reside on a forested hillside within the Eagle Mountain Sanctuary aviary on the Dollywood park. It is the largest aviary presentation of non-releasable Bald Eagles in the world and can be viewed by the public from early April through late December. This particular nest is the home of "Independence" and "Franklin.
