Eagle celebration to return; update from the Delaware Highlands Conservancy

The resurgence of the bald ragle in the Upper Delaware Valley continues.

At one point, legislator Gene Benson said the he often sees eagles flying over and taking trout out of the Neversink River when he goes to work at the Fallsburg wastewater plant. He said, “I know we concentrate pretty much on the Delaware River; I’d like to concentrate on the other end of the county as well if possible.”

Mitchell said, “That make sense.”

Benson said, “There’s actually a DEC fishing area this side of the plant and you can see the eagles from there.”
McKean said, “I know, it’s actually very unsexy to do your eagle watching at a wastewater plant [remarks interrupted by laughter] and the plant is why the eagles are there; and that’s part of the education—it could definitely work.”
