The Delaware Valley Eagle Alliance has scheduled Saturday, Jan. 14, 2006 (rain, snow, or shine), as the day will kick off with opening dedications at 9:30 AM in the Narrowsburg, New York school auditorium. According to John A.

Our dedication is to increase awareness, understanding and promote conservation of our wildlife and the natural environment”. Uniquely combining entertainment and education for all attending, the award winning Narrowsburg NY “EagleFest” is an event for everyone to be proud of! Successful in bringing in local residents and out-of-town visitors of all ages to the day’s multi-faceted series of activities. It brings much deserved attention to the natural resources that enrich our lives in the Delaware River Valley region. In addition to live demonstrations by the Bill Streeter, executive director of the Delaware Valley Raptor Center in Milford, this coming year’s EagleFest will feature educational programs and exhibits. Eagle expert, Peter Nye of the New York Department of Environmental Conservation will be presenting, as well as several biologists/naturalists from NJ and PA. Frank Holmes is the featured artist. A children’s eagle art contest; ice sculpture and wood carving demonstrations; photography exhibits; and eagle viewing sites all add to the day’s excitement.
