As bald eagles rear this year’s chicks right here in the Capital region, Five Rivers Conservation Trust will hold its annual gathering of members and friends and host a special presentation about the recovery of Bald Eagles in New Hampshire and in the Five Rivers’ region.
On Thursday, May 28, at 5:30 p.m., at Havenwood Heritage Heights, Five Rivers will briefly recap its successful year and introduce Chris Martin, N.H. Audubon’s raptor biologist to tell the story of how bald eagles have returned to our state.
Bald Eagles began to nest in the Granite State again in 1989 after a 40-year absence, and today, there are over 40 breeding pairs of Bald Eagles in the state, including at least one confirmed pair in the Five Rivers region.
Thanks to their recent recovery, the Bald Eagle was removed from the federal Threatened and Endangered Species List in 2007, and downlisted from Endangered to Threatened in New Hampshire in 2008.
Attendees at the annual gathering will learn about Five Rivers activities over the past year, have time to visit with Five Rivers members and friends and learn more about the efforts to help this majestic species recover and once again occupy an important place in New Hampshire’s ecosystem. Space is limited, so please RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org or 225-7225 to reserve a place at the annual gathering and special presentation.
