ADDRESS UPDATE: Called Teatown and the EagleFest is held @ Croton Point Park in Croton-on-the-Hudson (not Ossining).
The first show, Raptors for Rookies, begins @ 9:15 a.m. in the Eagle Theatre. Let's plan on meeting there between 8:30 a.m. and 8:45 a.m. to start the day.
Observe eagles and other birds of prey in their natural habitat and in a controlled setting. Join SOCS for a fun-filled informative day at the Teatown Hudson River Eagle Fest conveniently located at Eagle Headquarters at Croton Point Park, Croton-on-Hudson.
This year the EagleFest is offering general admission to all their activities for an incredibly low price of $10 per person (must purchase tickets in advance to get this price). Tickets are non-refundable. The EagleFest will be rescheduled to Sunday, February 9th if the weather is not suitable on Saturday, February 8th. I’ll update the Meetup event as the date gets closer so watch for any changes. Also, send me your cell # if I don’t have it.

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.
