When winter returns to the lower Merrimack Valley, so do Bald Eagles and Snowy Owls and other exciting winter wildlife. Every year we host a grand event marking their return. This year we hope you'll join us online and in person for programs in the Newburyport and Amesbury area to celebrate our very special winter residents.
- Online Wildlife Lectures
-Online Raptor Demonstrations
-Live Outdoor Programs for Children and Adults
While the banks of the Merrimack River will not be lined with crowds of eagle spotters this season, we rejoice in recognizing the wonders of the natural world as our local habitats welcome winter's animal visitors. Our virtual and special in-person activities are designed to keep all participants safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. In-person programs are limited to ten or fewer participants wearing masks and social-distancing. Online registrations for all Eagle Festival events, whether live or virtual, will be required to help manage capacity limits and minimize contact.
