Fireworks display under discussion: alternatives being explored
The FWS investigation was conducted in response to The River Reporter’s (TRR) follow up on an incident brought to the attention of TRR by a Tusten resident who discovered one of the Narrowsburg eagle fledglings stranded on a spit of land below the nest on the morning following last year’s display.
The issue of the fireworks and the proximity of the eagle’s nest have been publicly discussed at various town board meetings in past years.
Some business owners recently expressed frustration and disappointment that the crowds of July 4th viewers, who might have visited their shops or dined in area restaurants before the fireworks, will go elsewhere.
Others in the community expressed optimism that a workable solution could be found to accommodate the fireworks and protect the eagles.
