In celebration of the 150-plus bald eagles who spend the winter along the Hudson Valley waterways, a slew of events are slated to take place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Croton Point Park in Croton-on-Hudson. They will be centered around eagle shows and bird walks, and many of them are for children.
Teatown Lake Reservation hosts the event, and more than 30 environmental groups are participating. Nine additional viewing sites—complete with heated tents and hot cocoa—are open to guests at no additional charge (donations will be accepted). They are:
- Croton Boat Ramp at Croton-Harmon Train Station; sponsored by Saw Mill River Audubon
- Boscobel House and Gardens in Garrison; with spotters from Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary
- George’s Island Park in Montrose; sponsored by Saw Mill River Audubon
- Kathryn W. Davis RiverWalk Center in Sleepy Hollow; details here
