February 9–14, 2021

Virtual & In-Person

When winter returns to Merrimack Valley, so do the Bald Eagles. Every year we host a grand event marking their return, and we hope you'll join us in Newburyport and Amesbury to celebrate these very special winter residents. 

The 2021 Merrimack River Eagle Festival will be held online and in-person from Tuesday, February 9 – Sunday, February 14, 2021

Activities will include . . .

  • Online wildlife lectures
  • Live, online raptor demonstrations
  • In-person outdoor programs for children & adults

While the banks of the Merrimack River will not be lined with crowds of eagle spotters this season, we rejoice in recognizing the wonders of the natural world as our local habitats welcome winter's animal visitors!
