Sutton Historical Society Presents “Return of the Bald Eagle”
On Tuesday, November 2, at 7 pm, the Sutton Historical Society will welcome Bill Reid, Chief Ranger of the Last Green Valley, for a presentation on “The Bald Eagle Returns”.
The program will take place at the First Congregational Church, 307 Boston Road.
The Last Green Valley is a National Heritage Corridor spanning 35 cities in eastern Connecticut and south-central Massachusetts with a rich history in a surprisingly rural landscape. With 84% forests and farms, The Last Green Valley is the last strip of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington, DC.Information on this National Heritage Corridor can be found at thelastgreenvalley.org.
Reid’s presentation will show how our country’s majestic national bird (Haliaeetus leucocephalus as it is scientifically named) is enjoying enhanced protection and innovative efforts to increase its wild population in southern New England. He will talk about bald eagles and working to increase their ecological success in our region. With sightings of bald eagles everywhere in Sutton, this presentation should prove to be very interesting for our citizens.
This free event is open to all members and the general public of all ages.
