TLGV’s January Calendar – It’s Eagle Month!
Bald Eagle Hike: 10 a.m., Jan. 18, the 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 2019 breeding season. He’ll also share some of the early findings of the Mid-Winter Eagle Survey, occurring Jan. 11. This is a mostly flat terrain, one-hour walk on rough surfaces. Please register by calling Bill at 860-774-3300.
Eagles with Horizon Wings: 1:15 p.m., Jan. 24, Creamery Brook Village, Brooklyn, CT. Join The Last Green Valley and Horizon Wings at Creamery Brook Village for a program with Atka and friends. There is limited space for this program, and everyone must register by calling Creamery Brook Village at 860-779-8700.
Acorn Adventure – Bald Eagles and Big Nests: 10 a.m., Jan. 25, Roseland Park, 205 Roseland Park Rd, Woodstock, CT. Children and their families are invited to join The Last Green Valley’s Chief Ranger Bill Reid to experience just how long a bald eagle’s wings are, how huge their eyes are and how big their nests are. 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. Enthusiasm and a desire to learn about these beautiful birds are essential! Acorn Adventures are free to families thanks to the generous sponsorship of Putnam Savings Bank.
