The Last Green Valley’s Chief Ranger Bill Reid, our longtime friend, will share with us heartening news of the return of the mighty bald eagle to our area.

With abundant rivers, lakes, and ponds, The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor (TLGV) has perfect habitat for bald eagles—our national symbol. Over the past decade eagles have been returning to the region and nesting along our rivers and lakes. This program tells the history of bald eagles in the country and describes the unique characteristics of these amazing birds. Information will be provided on TLGV’s role assisting the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to monitor bald eagle nests and statewide midwinter eagle survey.

We are blessed to live in a distinctive little corner of paradise. There’s no place else like it. Explore TLGV’s website http://thelastgreenvalley.org/.
