The New Year is a great time to recharge in Westchester County. Cozy up and enjoy a long holiday weekend at one of the county’s exceptional hotels or come experience a unique outdoor event with the newly expanded Eaglefest at Croton-Point-Park.

“If you are looking for a special family event this February, look no further than EagleFest,” said County Executive Robert P. Astorino. “The event offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for visitors of all ages to explore majestic eagles in their natural environment.”

Teatown’s Annual EagleFest, a signature Hudson Valley event, soars into the Croton-Point-Park on Saturday, February 11th. Created by Teatown Lake Reservation, a leading regional environmental education center and nature preserve, EagleFest gives visitors of all ages a unique opportunity to view these magnificent birds both up close and in their natural environment. EagleFest will include a variety of programs and workshops geared for all ages. The newest feature of the festival this year is a screening of the critically-acclaimed documentary “The Eagle Huntress.” Available to all EagleFest general admission ticket holders, the film is being shown in cooperation with Pace University’s Environmental program. Visit for more information.
Attendees coming from Manhattan or Poughkeepsie can take Metro-North trains to Croton-Harmon Train Station. Special EagleTrain cars will depart from Grand Central at 9:47 am and 9:50 am from Poughkeepsie. During the trip, on-board naturalists will point out various Hudson Valley birds to riders. Free shuttle buses will bring attendees to/from the Croton-Harmon Train Station to Croton Point Park. To participate in this event, guests must purchase a regular train ticket from Metro-North.
