Eagle Watching for the 2021 Winter Season

The  Conservancy regretfully announces that all guided Eagle Watch bus tours for January and February 2021 are cancelled due to COVID-19. The safety of staff, volunteers, and program attendees is the Conservancy’s highest priority, and Eagle Watch bus tours cannot be hosted with appropriate social distancing measures in place.

Instead, visit www.DelawareHighlands.org/eagles for information on viewing eagles safely on your own and to download a map to take your own driving tour and look for eagles in the Upper Delaware River region. Follow the Conservancy on Facebook and Instagram for our virtual Eagle Watch content, with photos, videos, updates, and current educational information on the eagles in our region through the winter season.

Please be aware that if you take your own driving tour through the region, eagle viewing blinds and restrooms may not be open. If the blind is open, please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and limit the number of people inside at one time. During your visit, please be compliant with CDC and state guidelines, and follow safety recommendations made by Conservancy volunteers. If the viewing blind is closed, it is important to remain inside your vehicle to avoid disturbing the wintering eagles, and to park only in designated public parking areas.

Conservancy offices remain closed to the public. Staff members are working remotely and can be reached via phone and email, though staff working hours may be varied and limited.
