For the past 10 years, Teatown Lake Reservation in Ossining NY has celebrated the return of the eagle to the lower Hudson Valley with a festival known as Teatown’s Hudson River EagleFest.
The event began in 2005 with a small but enthusiastic gathering of 300. Teatown’s 10th Annual Hudson River EagleFest, a favorite winter event in the region, will be held on Saturday, February 8, 2014 at Croton Point Park, (Eagle Headquarters), which can accommodate the 5,000 attendees for a full day of activities to celebrate our national symbol.
Ten additional eagle viewing sites will be hosted by environmental organizations all along the Hudson River.
Amazing live raptor shows are always a fan favorite and will be held throughout the day. Additional activities range from guided and independent eagle viewing, bus tours, storytelling, a tent brimming with children’s programs and activities, bird walks and displays from 30 area organizations. Entertaining and educational shows take place all day long in The Eagle Theatre and Eaglet Stage under heated tents. Food available for purchase will be provided by the Wobble Café.
