On Saturday February 5th thirty eagle project volunteers met to discuss the 2011 eagle season.  The meeting took place during the Cumberland County Eagle Festival which is held the first Saturday in February.  It was a rainy day but that didn’t keep the volunteers away.

During the festival there were talks, walks, vendors and educational displays.  Eagle Project volunteer Kevin Buynie made and donated two eagle shaped bird houses to CWF.  We raffled one off at the festival and it was a big hit!

People stopped by the CWF table and reported eagle sightings and a few possible new eagle nests. It is always nice to see how interested people are in eagles, raptors and wildlife in general.

Thank you to everyone who came out to visit us and support our work to monitor and conserve eagles in New Jersey!
