Join us this year for a special eagle walk led by Director John DeFillipo and Master Naturalist/Wetland Steward Kathy Nance, and Wetland Steward Bill Nance. Get an in-depth history of the eagles from John, as Bill and Kathy focus their camera lens on the nest and share their view via a computer screen. Approximately 1,200 feet from the new Nest Tree, we will watch Bald Eagle activity and share information about the eagles and answer questions. You will be out at the observation site for approximately 2 hours. Space is limited so reserve your spot today!
