GET OUT AND GET ACTIVE – SPRING HAS ARRIVED!
Spring has sprung in the Eagle River Valley Corridor, snow drops and crocuses are in full bloom and the birds are singing. Our corridor abounds with wildlife and has one of the largest habitats for eagles. The bald eagle was brought back from near extinction due to the active preservation of their local habitat. It is exciting to learn that the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society with assistance of the New York State DEC has trapped four golden eagles and fitted them with tracking devices to study their habits in an effort to prevent their extinction as well. If you have never seen a golden eagle, you can view photos online at http://doas.us/audubon-tags-four-golden-eagles
Trout and salmon season is in full swing, having started earlier this month with many of the rivers and creeks well stocked. Want a taste of fly fishing?
