PRESENTATION ::: 30 year celebration of the first Bald Eagle nest at Quabbin

  • Quabbin Visitors Center Route 9 Belchertown, MA USA (map)

On Sunday afternoon at 2 PM on March 3rd at the Quabbin Visitors Center in Belchertown , I will be giving a presentation about the bald eagle restoration project that took place throughout the 1980’s at The Quabbin Reservoir. MassWildlife released a total of 41 immature bald eagles at the Quabbin with hopes to restore the bald eagle to Massachusetts as a nesting specie. The last known bald eagle nest was in 1906 on Cape Cod. You’ve seen eagles at Quabbin and all around Massachusetts now,, but do you know the story behind them getting there? I do ! I was part of it. Come by and see the whole process from when the birds are brought as chicks to the Prescott Peninsula “hack site” on Quabbin, until they are released into the wild 6 weeks later. Every eagle show I do usually fills up, so arrive early to make sure you get a seat because they close the Visitor Center when it fills up.
