Wearing 4-inch heels and decked in designer buckskins, entertainer Dolly Parton helped re-introduce a bald eagle into the wild yesterday. The eagle was blown from its nest several weeks ago in Florida and was subsequently rescued by the American Eagle Foundation.

The organization has its headquarters within the Dollywood theme park which includes a 1.5-million-cubic-foot Eagle Mountain Sanctuary and its Wings of America bird of prey show. The theme park recently donated an additional $250,000 to AEF to support facility upgrades and new programs. From the article,

“The eagle release event also included an update on the United States Mint commemorative eagle coin program that is currently raising money for the AEF’s eagle projects. Only 2-months into the year-long marketing effort, surcharges from sales of the gold, silver and clad coins have already raised over $5 million for the non-profit conservation group. This attractive half-dollar coin can be purchased for $10.95 (proof) and $8.95 (uncirculated). Three dollars from each unit sold actually benefits the bald eagle.”

Great work by Dolly — and wonderful that her theme park also includes a home for such a beneficial organization. By the way, Parton decided to name the eagle “Liberty” because as she added, “”I thought that sounded better than Baldy.”
