They also care for three non releasable golden eagles that have been featured in programs aired on PBS, the BBC, National Geographic and others.

Mt. Bachelor’s entire operations are closed today due to a break in their main water line. Check out the Mt. Bachelor conditions page for all the details. We’ll keep you updated when we learn more. Unforeseen circumstances happen in life and while we can’t ride our beloved Mt. Bachelor today, we know the good staff are working hard to get things fixed asap. With all the great riding it’s a good day to enjoy some other aspects of Central Oregon, maybe a hike out to Tumalo Falls or a drive to points east or a cup of coffee at Backporch Coffee Roasters.
