Eagle Day: free fun for the whole family


December 23, 2013

HAWLEY, PA — On Saturday, January 25 from 1 to 4 p.m., 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. 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.
