see details + Hudson Valley Bald Eagles - CANCELED!
UPDATE!

***This Program has been CANCELED ENTIRELY for today!

The snowstorm will affect our speaker from traveling from his home in New Paltz and so we have rescheduled his presentation to be on Saturday February 13th at Peebles Island State Park Visitors Center.

Postponed to February 13th at 2pm at Peebles Island State Park Visitors Center. Tom Lake, Hudson River Estuary Program Naturalist for the N.Y.S. Department of Environmental Conservation, will be the guest speaker for a program on Hudson Valley Bald Eagles.

Since 1782, the Bald Eagle has been our national bird. However,the last 230 years have been difficult for them. The talk will travel across those centuries to see how the Bald Eagle evolved from an honored symbol to a target for human ignorance and neglect.
This downward spiral culminated in the mid-20th century with their extirpation from New York State from the effects of DDT. They were subsequently placed on the Federal Endangered Species List.

The final chapter in this story finds the Bald Eagle rising from near ruin to their present day abundance, and a recovery so complete that you may see an eagle any day of the year, anywhere in the Hudson Valley.
In addition to his ongoing work with eagles, Lake has compiled and edited the Hudson River Almanac, a weekly natural history journal, for 20 years. He teaches Anthropology and Archaeology at SUNY Dutchess Community College.

Not only will we be looking for adult and juvenile Bald Eagles, but we’ll also be looking for any over-wintering songbirds and shorebirds residents of the island and the flats.

This is our first year partnering with Peebles Island S.P. to help survey the island and river! See you there!
