Julie and Ivy are walking in the park one day when they resuce a baby owl. When they take the owl to a local rescue center, Julie becomes involved in raising money for the release of a family of bald eagles. I'm confused because the birthday invitation that Julie sends indicates that it is now 1976, but I don't remember two years passing in the books and the date for the series is 1974. The backmatter this time is on "Caring for the Earth in the 1970s" and briefly chronicles the beginning of the environmental movement. ( )

Julie and Ivy come across a baby owl in the park, and when Julie brings it to a rescue center, she meets a family of bald eagles. These eagles need to be released back into the environment before they become habituated to living in captivity and can no longer survive in the wild. Through determination and good ideas, Julie and her class raise the money needed to build a tower so that they can finally be released. Julie's birthday isn't about cake and ice cream- it's about watching them finally get a chance at freedom. ( )
