Teatown Hudson River EagleFest

February 8, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

EagleFest Logo

The bald eagle’s return to the Hudson Valley after being on the brink of extinction is one of the great conservation success stories of our time.

Join us at Croton Point Park as our region’s bald eagles descend upon the Hudson River as part of their winter migration. Celebrate the return of this magnificent bird with live bird-of-prey shows, educators with viewing scopes observing wild eagles, children’s activities, food trucks, and 25+ environmental organizations — all in heated tents!
