Merrimack River Eagle Festival

Save The Date!

When frigid weather brings bald eagles to the greater Newburyport area, please join us for a grand celebration of these special winter residents! Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats Education Center and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge will present our annual Merrimack River Eagle Festival on Saturday, February 27, 2016. 

Come to the Eagle Festival for a full day of fun indoor and outdoor activities, and learn more about these magnificent birds and the habitat they share with us. Festival features include:

  • Eagle-spotting locations along the lower Merrimack with on-site interpreters
  • Bus tours guided by expert birders starting in downtown Newburyport
  • Live raptor demonstrations at Newburyport’s City Hall
  • Children’s nature activities and live bird demonstrations at Mass Audubon’s Joppa Flats and the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters
