For 10 years, Teatown Lake Reservation has celebrated the return of the eagle to the lower Hudson Valley with a popular winter event known as EagleFest. This year’s festival takes place on Saturday, February 8, at Croton Point Park, also known as “Eagle Headquarters,” and features a full schedule of activities to celebrate the nation’s symbol.
Ten additional eagle viewing sites will be hosted by collaborating environmental organizations all along the Hudson River and live raptor shows, always a favorite at the Hudson River EagleFest, will be held throughout the day. Additional activities range from guided and independent eagle viewing, bus tours, storytelling, a tent brimming with children’s programs and activities, bird walks and displays from 30 area organizations. Entertaining and educational shows take place all day in The Eagle Theatre and Eaglet Stage under heated tents, and food and cocoa will be available.
General Admission tickets allow visitors to enter all tents and enjoy all activities for one price, while bus tour tickets are an additional $25. Pre-sale tickets, available for purchase at Teatown.org, are $10 for adults and teens over 14 and $8 for kids ages 5 to 13, with free admission for children 4 and under. Tickets on the day of the event will cost $15 for adults and teens over 14 and $10 for children ages 5 to 13.
