Our Tennessee Mountain Home
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
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.
