EagleFest Set for Feb. 8

Boscobel hosts viewing station

Putnam Highlands Audubon Society (PHAS) will participate in Teatown’s Hudson River EagleFest at Croton Point Park from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Feb. 8 (snow date Feb. 9). Bald Eagles are abundant this time of year over and around the Hudson River, and EagleFest is the perfect opportunity to view these majestic birds in the wild.

Hike out to the river, and then come back into heated tents where eagle presentations, raptor shows, and children’s activities will take place. The PHAS table in the main tent will have Audubon information for all, eagle related guides and books for sale, and eagle handouts for children. Visit teatown.org for event details.

Boscobel House and Gardens will also open their grounds for the EagleFest event where visitors will find breathtaking vistas and viewing opportunities from the Belvedere overlooking the Hudson River. There will be eagle experts with scopes, a heated tent and complimentary hot cocoa.

Grab a free keepsake map and head on to the next viewing station for a fun day of searching for our national bird in the magnificent Hudson Valley. Though it is not necessary, sign-up to spot eagles at Boscobel by registering at boscobel.org.
