Birding/Eagle Walk on Saturday, March 1st at 10AM
Join us for a family Birding/Eagle Walk on the trail leading to the Saugerties Lighthouse. Organized by the Woodstock Land Conservancy, the guided walk will be led by Steve Chorvas of the Esopus Creek Conservancy and the John Burroughs Natural History Society.
The Saugerties Lighthouse is located within the Esopus Estuary, a designated Significant Fish and Wildlife Habitat. Water fowl, wading birds, and diverse songbirds use the marshlands and wooded areas of the estuary for feeding, nesting, and rests during migration. In the winter months, songbirds dart through the trees, mergansers fish the open waters, and bald eagles nest atop the eastern bluffs of the Hudson opposite the Lighthouse.
Meet in the parking lot at the entrance to the Saugerties Lighthouse trail at 10AM on March 1st.
