Join us for Eagle Month!
January is Eagle Month in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor. You’ll want to save these dates for programs.
Bald Eagle Hike
9 a.m., Jan. 22 ( postponed from Jan. 15)
Quinebaug Trout Hatchery
141 Trout Hatchery Road
Central Village, CT
Join Chief Ranger Bill Reid on a ramble around the Trout Hatchery, one of the sites where the Connecticut Mid-Winter Eagle Survey is conducted. This property is one of the best places to see a bald eagle in the wild, and we have seen them here several years in a row. While on the walk, Bill will update participants on the numbers of eagles nesting in The Last Green Valley and results of the last breeding season. He’ll also share some of the early findings of the Mid-Winter Eagle Survey, occurring Jan. 8. This is a mostly flat terrain, about a one-hour walk on rough surfaces. Please register by calling Bill at 860-774-3300 or emailing Bill@tlgv.org.
And for families:
Due to the snow we are cancelling the Jan. 29 event. We are planning another bald eagle adventure for the family with Horizon Wings in April.
Acorn Adventure – Eagle Eyes with Special Guests Horizon Wings
10 a.m. Jan. 23 & 29
Roseland Park, 205 Roseland Park Rd. Woodstock, CT
Children and their families are invited to join The Last Green Valley staff to experience just how long a bald eagle’s wings are, how huge their eyes are and how big they build their nests. The group will also search for eagles at this popular spot for these incredible birds of prey. Bring binoculars or a spotting scope if you have them. Toward the end of our adventure Horizon Wings of Ashford will join us with some special guests. Acorn Adventures are free to families thanks to the generous sponsorship of Centreville Bank.
