Hudson River EagleFest
Headquartered at Croton Point Park, this Teatown-sponsored yearly event takes advantage of the winter arrival of the bald eagle population to the lower Hudson Valley to celebrate this amazing raptor with shows, activities, children’s programs, and, of course, one-of-a-kind eagle viewing! Satellite sites joining in the celebration include Riverfront Green Park in Peekskill and The New Croton Dam.
