Bill Streeter with Julia, a golden eagle.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy and partners will present Eagle Day, a free afternoon for the whole family at the Wallenpaupack Environmental Learning Center in Hawley on Saturday, Nov. 17.

Enjoy a “Live Birds of Prey” presentation with Bill Streeter of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center and hands-on activities for all ages to learn about eagles and other native birds. Advance registrations are not accepted for Eagle Day, but it is very popular and seating is available on a first-come-first-served basis. Doors open at 12:30 p.m. and the National Park Service – Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River will have children’s activities and demonstrations ongoing until showtime at 1:30 p.m.

The Upper Delaware River region is one of the largest wintering habitats for eagles in the northeast United States because of abundant clean water and large, undisturbed stands of trees. Protected lands in Sullivan County, New York and Pike and Wayne counties provide a safe haven for these migratory birds, as well as breeding eagles that live here year-round.
