January and February eagle watches at PEEC

January 15, 2014

DINGMANS FERRY, PA — Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC) will present several eagle watches during January and February. Each of the eagle watches will be led by Jan Lokuta and will include visits to the Mongaup Reservoir, the Delaware River and the Eagle Institute.

Participants will look for resident nesting pairs and winter visitors. Eagles congregate along open water during this time of year and are easier to see. Eagle watch for eagle enthusiasts will be held Saturday, January 25 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will include a special stop at the PPL Environmental Center’s “Eagle Day.” PEEC’s second eagle watch will be Sunday, February 2 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost for each of the programs will be $20 per person, which includes transportation and natural history information on bald eagles.

For more information or to register, call PEEC at 570/828-2319. Participants should call to register and reserve a seat in the van. Participants should bring a lunch and a camera and dress in warm layers. The groups will all meet at PEEC’s main building to begin the eagle watching adventure.
