PHOTOS FROM THE 2017 EAGLEFEST - COURTESY OF CROTON UNITED:
Teatown’s Hudson River EagleFest took place at Croton Point Park yesterday. Mayor Greg Schmidt and Deputy Mayor Bob Anderson were on hand to welcome the attendees on behalf of the village and enjoy the annual event. One of the highlights was the presentation by Bill Streeter, from the Delaware Valley Raptor Center featuring a bald eagle, owls and other raptors. All birds in the presentation had been brought to the DVRC after they were injured, but could not be sufficiently rehabilitated to be released into the wild. Greg and Bob also met representatives of the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, to discuss the planned treatment of hydrilla in the Croton River, and Clearwater, about the return of the annual festival to Croton this summer. NY State Senator Terrence Murphy, who partnered with Teatown to support the event and arranged free admission for veterans and a guest, was there with his chief of staff, Matthew Slater. Former Croton Mayor Leo Wiegman, a long-time supporter and past board member of Teatown, helped out as a volunteer, and for the 6th year in a row, Feed the Birds owner Rob Armanini supported EagleFest with a booth at the event.
