Sun 5/6 @ 12-5PM
One need not be an ornithologist to know that the bald eagle is a species of hawk, female hawks are larger than males, and that wind turbine sites increasingly threaten their very lives, and other avian life.
Find out more about bald eagles, and how we can protect them, at Mentor Marsh’s annual open house.
Throughout the celebration, all ages participate in activities, games and crafts that educate the public about eagle habitat and conservation, and what Mentor Marsh is doing to protect our iconic American bird.
Visitors should register for one of the guided hikes to view the resident eagle nest, now in its ninth year, which take place at 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 or 3:30pm. A spotting scope will be provided, and binoculars may be available.
Admission is free and all activities are rain or shine. Organizers recommend wearing mud-friendly footwear.
