Quarterly Eagle Count

Come be a part of our quarterly Eagle Count with New Hope Audubon Society. This is a great opportunity to enjoy Jordan Lake before the crowds and hopefully see eagles too!!  Location will be behind the visitor center out on the pier.  Please be prepared for the weather.  If you get hooked, we have several sites around the lake that could use your help!.  If you have any questions fill free to contact me at
