I am loving watching the baby eagles grow and be cared for by their mother on the Eagle Cam, broadcasting live from the 2,700 acres Duke Farms in Hillsborough, N.J. This is one of the largest privately-owned parcels of undeveloped land in the state.
Bald eagles are very sensitive to human disturbance- so it is not okay to go near nests- if disturbed, the eagles may even abandon the nest. So this is a great way to observe.
The mission of Duke Farms is to serve as a model of environmental stewardship and inspire visitors to become informed stewards of the land. You can assist us with our habitat regeneration efforts by volunteering. Go here to see a list of current educational volunteer opportunities, or to learn about our nature programs and tours.
