Eagle Day – Free Fun for the Whole Family
On Saturday, January 25th from 1pm-4pm, join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, PPL, and other local organizations for an educational, fun and free Eagle Day for the whole family, located at PPL's Lake Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center in Hawley, PA. Enjoy a presentation with live birds from Bill Streeter, help to build an eagle’s nest, and participate in other hands-on activities.
The Upper Delaware River region is one of the largest wintering habitats for eagles in the northeast United States because of abundant clean water and large, undisturbed stands of trees. Protected lands in Sullivan County, NY and Pike and Wayne Counties in PA provide a safe haven for these migratory birds, as well as breeding eagles that live here year-round. Twenty years ago there was just one eagle’s nest in PA and one in NY—now, there are hundreds in each state.
Join us as we celebrate the eagle’s resurgence in the Upper Delaware River region and learn what we can do to ensure it continues to survive and thrive. Check the Delaware Highlands Conservancy’s calendar of events on www.DelawareHighlands.org to learn about additional upcoming eagle events including a series of Eagle Watch bus trips scheduled throughout January and February.
