New Wildlife Programs at Mercer County Park
Two pairs of bald eagles have been spotted nesting in Mercer County Park and the community is embracing this with bald eagle themed programs for locals.
On Friday, February 8th between 1 P.M. - 3 P.M., locals will be able to visit the park in designated areas for a chance to snag a peak at the birds. This will be the first public event held at Mercer County Park and will continue each week though May.
The Park commission is partnering with Wildlife Center Friends and the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey to offer the programs to Mercer County residents.
A naturalist team will take the group to the viewing site where they will have a chance to spot activity through binoculars while being educated on bald eagle nesting.
"Mercer County's preserved open space and park lands provide a rich habitat for nesting eagles and we hope the community can learn about our newest inhabitants," Mercer County Executive Brian M. Hughes tells patch.com.
