Eagle Court

Eagle Scout Courts of Honor

We Provide The Very Best Eagle Court of Honor Programs!

Since our inception in 1980, we have provided our eagles to participate with scouts as they celebrated their achievement upon reaching the highest honor in scouting.  We provide either a golden or bald eagle for your Court of Honor.  Or, if you wish to double the impact, we can provide both.  Our Bald eagles are in high demand and tend to be booked early so availability is not always possible.


Patrick Tidwell, below, officially ascended into the realm of Eagle Scout. Flanked by his family at his January 30th ceremony, above. Patrick’s eagle scout project was the first one to benefit REF’s new facility in Brighton.


Program: our 30 minute program covers the symbolism of the eagle in scouting, as well as the cultural associations of eagles with humanity over the past 5,000 years. We discuss the biology and ecology of eagles and their current status as well as any contemporary issues you may wish to know about.  The eagle scout will receive one of our custom Four Eagle posters inscribed with their name.  They receive a gold eagle pin, a tin of eagle mints, and a membership with REF which includes our exclusive license plates featuring the bald eagle-shown below. If the Eagle Scout has not yet reached driving age, his family will receive one of our license plate sets. You cannot get any of these items anywhere else to help you commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime event. A few moments for some great photos are also included with your own photographer.

REF created the first environmental license plates in Colorado. If you book one of our eagles you also get one of our Colorado Respects Wildlife license plate sets for your scout or the scout’s family vehicle.

You and your Eagle Scout will never forget the experience.

Fees: Basic Fee for an Eagle Court of Honor: $175 within a 20 mile radius of our facility in Brighton, Colorado.  This includes either species of eagle depending on availability.  A surcharge for time and distance will be added to that fee outside of the 20 mile radius.  

Bookings with less than 7 days notice will incur a $100 rush fee if they can be accommodated. Prices subject to change without notice. Call us at 303-680-8500.

If you are outside of Colorado, some states require special permits for us to enter that state with our birds.  These permits may require a minimum of 30 days of processing time.
