Delaware Highlands Conservancy Hosts Oct. 11 Eagles And Their Habitat Program At The Van Scott Nature Reserve In Wayne County

The Upper Delaware River region is home to one of the largest wintering
populations of bald eagles in the northeast. 

Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at the Van Scott Nature Reserve in Beach Lake, Wayne County on Tuesday, October 11 from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. for “Eagles and Their Habitat.” 

The program will be presented by Don Hamilton, National Park Service biologist and Natural Resources Chief, and Paul Gamer, Eagle Watch volunteer and bus tour guide.

Learn about the resident bald eagles in our region that live here year-round and the migrants that arrive in the winter from Canada and upstate New York. 

You’ll learn from Don and Paul all about bald eagles, the habitat they need to thrive, the best places to view wintering eagles, and “Eagle Etiquette” tips for safely viewing the birds without disturbing them. 

After the presentation, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and join the discussion.

Space is limited and advance registration is required. Fee is $5 for Conservancy members and $10 for non-members. Light refreshments will be served.
