Blackwater NWR 14th Annual Eagle Festival
Saturday, March 15, 2014
9:00am - 4:00pm
One of the largest largest breeding populations of bald eagles in the United States is close to home: Blackwater Refuge on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Bring the family and spend the day at the Refuge learning about bald eagles, spotting them in the wild, and having a great day packed with fun!
This unique event is a must for nature lovers! The family-friendly schedule of events includes talks with experts, tours, live programs, exhibits, entertainment, and a ton of kids' activities such as crafts, science and nature explorations, a puppet show, and more.
Blackwater Refuge is located 12 miles south of Cambridge and is filled with 27,000 acres of woodland, rich tidal marsh, freshwater ponds and managed cropland—great for birdwatching, cycling, hiking, and paddling. The refuge features a full service Visitor Center with a bookstore, restrooms, butterfly garden, and observatory, and a 4-mile Wildlife Drive with walking trails and a photo blind.
