GATLINBURG, Tenn. (AP) — A woman known as "The Eagle Lady" is presenting a birds of prey program this week at Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Doris Mager has worked with raptors for more than 35 years. The park says she has cared for more than 80 injured eagles and hundreds of other raptors.

She set up an educational and research group called Save Our American Raptors in 1983. Now 88, Mager travels around the country providing educational programs. The park says the presentations give visitors a chance to see raptors up close while learning about features and habits of the birds.

The program will be at 10 a.m. EDT Friday at the Ocanaluftee Visitor Center. The center is approximately two miles north of Cherokee, N.C., on Newfound Gap Road.
