Teatown Kicks off 17th Annual EagleFest Celebrating Return of the Bald Eagle to the Hudson Valley
January 30 - February 7$5 – $7
Teatown’s Hudson River EagleFest, the annual festival celebrating the bald eagle’s winter migration to the Hudson Valley, will kick off its 17th season on January 30 with a week of exciting virtual programs and limited in-person programs for children, families, and birding enthusiasts.
From Saturday, January 30 to Sunday, February 7, 2021, Teatown will host a series of virtual programs featuring Connecticut falconer and wildlife rehabilitator Christine Peyreigne of Cristine’s Critters; Anne Swaim, executive director of Saw Mill River Audubon, and programs by Zeiss Sports Optics, as well as Teatown’s own animal ambassadors. New this year will be the highly anticipated presentation on the healing nature of bird watching by Holly Merker, a cancer survivor who credits ornitherapy as a tool in her recovery. To make the programming accessible to all, Teatown is charging a minimal registration fee per program ($5 for members and $7 for non-members).
Teatown also plans to host limited in-person family-fun activities including the “Golden Feather” treasure hunt, with Teatown swag bags as prizes. Adding some “virtual reality” to the virtual world will be a new map of viewing sites and virtual visits to select viewing locations developed in collaboration with virtual reality company A&R360.
