Bald Eagle Program at the Great Swamp NWR

In 1982, there was one active eagle nest in New Jersey. By 2018, there were 185. Bald eagles are one of the best examples of an endangered species comeback in our state.

NJ Fish and Wildlife Bald Eagle Project Volunteers Kevin and Karin Buynie are completing their 11th season monitoring nests and will be giving a public presentation on August 11.
You will learn about the history of bald eagle conservation in New Jersey and at the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge where eagles have now fledged.

The program, Second Sunday... with Friends: MAGNIFICENT EAGLES will be on August 11 at 1:30 pm – 3:00 pm at the Refuge's Helen C. Fenske Visitor Center at 32 Pleasant Plains Rd., Harding Township (directions)

The Friends of Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1999 in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and has a refuge-centric focus to support the goals, projects, and mission of the Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Their operations and activities are managed by an all-volunteer board of directors and committees.
