Bald Eagles in Your Backyard
Time & Place
Tulpehaking Nature Center, 157 Westcott Avenue, Hamilton NJ. Mercer County
Have you ever witnessed the awesome view of a Bald Eagle soaring through the sky? Sightings like these occur in the Abbott Marshlands thanks to a pair of Bald Eagles that have nested there for the last 6 years. CWF eagle project volunteers Kevin & Karin Buynie will share their experiences monitoring this eagle pair and others. CWF biologist Larissa Smith will be on hand to answer questions about the NJ Bald Eagle Project and you'll even have a chance to see a live Bald Eagle up close.
Suggested donation $5/person. Proceeds benefit the Wildlife Center Friends and Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ.
Brick Twp. Osprey Platform Install
Time & Place
58 Seaview Ave, Brick, NJ
Volunteers are needed to help replace an osprey nesting platform in Brick Twp. Platform is constructed in a manner that easily allows predators (raccoon) to climb into the nest and predate any eggs or young. The nest was active in 2014 but not productive. We believe that by providing a more adequate platform the pair will be productive.
At least 6 strong volunteers are needed to install a 16' high wood platform. Site is accessible by land from the address listed on this event. Please dress accordingly. Bring hip waders, boots, or chest waders to wear onto the marsh. Bring a pair of work gloves as well. All tools will be provided.
Volunteers will carry the platform out onto the marsh to where it will be installed. (less than 500 ft.). The old platform will be removed from the marsh.
Installation should take no more than two hours. Heavy rain/snow will cancel. We'll post an update the night before whether the install is a go or not. RSVP to this event or by emailing Ben.
