“We’re just thrilled that Senator Ball could secure this generous fund” said Barron.  “The expenses are a huge hurdle for the continued success of this event, and we’re just soaring over this generous contribution.”

Eaglefest brings together 30 different public and private collaborators in support of the continued preservation of the Hudson Valley’s bald eagle population.
