REGION — Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy (DHC) and its partners for a series of eagle-watching events all winter long, including guided bus tours and Eagle Day at the Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center.
On January 6, join the Conservancy, Brookfield Renewable and other local environmental organizations for Eagle Day, a free afternoon of fun for the whole family at the Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center in Hawley, PA. Enjoy a “Live Birds of Prey” presentation with Bill Streeter of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center and hands-on activities provided by Lacawac Sanctuary for all ages to learn about eagles and other native birds. You do not need to register in advance for this program, but it is very popular and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 1:30 p.m.
Guided eagle-viewing bus trips are scheduled for January 13 and 27 and February 10 and 17. Learn from an expert guide and take a scenic drive on a heated bus throughout the Upper Delaware River region to look for and learn about bald eagles and their habitat.
The trips commence at the Upper Delaware Visitor Center in Lackawaxen, PA and run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Dress warmly in layers and wear waterproof boots. Bring binoculars, camera and snacks. Snow dates for the trips are the Sundays immediately following. Check www.DelawareHighlands.org for the most up-to-date information and any additional trips.
