Breeding Eagles

Take a moment to learn about breeding eagles. And remember, like people, breeding eagles and their young need healthy lands, clean waters, and a safe environment to survive and thrive.

Eagle Habitat

Eagle Habitat

Caring for the lands and waters of our region means eagles can live and thrive here. It's no different for people. If we respect and protect our lands and waters, they will sustain eagles—and all of us—now and for future generations.

Eagles face the same threats that people do: Fracking that could damage water sources, incorrect and wasteful timbering, the accumulation of other sources of pollution from careless people, businesses, and industries, and badly planned development.

Explore the Conservancy website to see the many ways you can directly help protect the lands and waters that sustain eagles and people. For private landowners, visit Landowner Corner

Fact:

Where do eagles nest? Nesting activity begins as early as February, when eagles search for territory and begin construction or renovation of existing nests. The female can lay one to three eggs; incubation lasts for 35 days.
