Bald Eagle Nests

In 1946 a polluted Anacostia forced Wasington’s last bald Eagles to abandon their Kingman Island nest. Following our 29 years restoration program we now have 4  nesting Pairs.

Thank you so much for collaborating with Creation Justice Ministries last week for the Cardinal Stritch Alternative Spring Break Group. Your presentation on environmental racism in DC was so informative. The students and I learned a lot. They also enjoyed meeting the animals & participating in the river clean-up. Thanks Again

This was the first time that I have ever volunteered for an organization long term and at first I was a bit nervous, but thanks to you the experience  was fun and rewarding. Thank you for being my site supervisor for the past three months, and teaching a lot about birds and the environment in general. Hope to keep in touch.
