The Bald Eagle: Back from the Brink

A symbol of national strength and unity, the Bald Eagle has also become a parable for nature's unshakable ties to humans. Estimated to have numbered 100,000 in pre-colonial times, hunting, habitat destruction, and pesticides took a toll on our national bird, bringing it to the brink of extinction by the early 1960s. Join Chris Lajewski, Onondaga Lake Conservation Corps Director and Montezuma Audubon Center Director, for a live virtual presentation to hear the conservation success story of the Bald Eagle, learn why over 100 eagles can be found at Onondaga Lake during the winter, and discover how the Montezuma Wetlands Complex played an important role in conserving our national bird. Fee: $5/person; $15/family.

You will receive a Zoom link to the live presentation in your confirmation email.
