Presented by Ranger Bill Reid of the Last Green Valley.
Join us as we welcome Ranger Bill Reid of the Last Green Valley back to Canterbury to share with us an update on the status of the bald eagles that live in our town and surrounding area. With abundant rivers, lakes and ponds The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor has the 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 including nests along the Quinebaug River in Canterbury.
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.
