Soaring Over The Last Green Valley: A Walk to See Bald Eagles

Jan. 14 & 27, 10 am, with rain/snow date of Jan. 28.

Quinebaug Valley Trout Hatchery, 131 Trout Hatchery Rd., Central Village, CT

Difficulty: Easy

Bald eagles return to The Last Green Valley in great numbers each January. Some seek open waters for hunting, others are returning to their nests to rebuild and prepare for chicks. The Trout Hatchery, at the confluence of the Quinebaug and Moosup Rivers and, of course, home to trout, attracts both migrant and resident bald eagles. Chief Ranger Bill Reid will lead us on an easy walk on mostly level ground while we scan the skies for soaring eagles. This location has been a successful spot to see eagles perching, hunting and flying. There are always many other winter birds to see as well. Bring your binoculars or a camera and bundle up. Please be aware that sometimes we are standing still watching the skies and the distance we walk will vary with the conditions. Bill will also be sharing the latest facts on bald eagles and have materials you can take with you about these amazing birds of prey. Registration is required to ensure there are enough materials, and we can communicate with you regarding the weather. To register call 860-774-3300 or email
