What Is The Last Green Valley?

Welcome to The Last Green Valley

The Last Green Valley is green by day and dark by night. We are a National Heritage Corridor with a rich history in a surprisingly rural landscape. With 84% forest and farm, we are the last swath of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington DC.

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. Together, we can care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!

Wish I could be there this morning. I hope you have a great turnout. Hope you’ll have a repeat event.

I got to ask, so what will the eagle coming to present think of wild ones around him? how will the wild ones react? they have to know each other are there. Will they call to each other or will he try to fly off with them?

good timing when an eagle flew over head 🙂

This bald eagle was photographed by Karen DiBonaventura here in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. While the favorite food of bald eagles is fish, they also enjoy waterfowl, like ducks, and small mammals. Their exceptional eyesight and powerful talons make them fantastic hunters, but they are also thieves and scavengers. Its well-documented that bald eagles will chase down osprey in an attempt to steal their catches. And they are often seen on the fresh carcasses of of much larger animals. They can only carry about four pounds as they fly so rumors of them flying off with small pets are not exactly adequate, but if you do have a small dog or an outdoor cat, keep the bald eagle in the sky or perched high in a tree in mind when you let them outside.
