- Save the Eagles Day
Save the Eagles Day originated in the Village of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey in 2015 as a result of an effort to save a pair of nesting bald eagles. Late in 2014, Skymark Development Corp of Paramus brought a study forth arguing that a landfill near where the eagles nested posed health risks. An eagle couple named Alice and Al, had nested along Overpeck Creek for several years. When the developer proposed a solution that included removing the tree the eagles nested in, the community and the Bergen County Audubon Society organized Save the Eagles Day on January 10, 2015. Eventually, they came to an agreement to preserve an area of the land as an eagle park. Alice and Al continued to live out their days in Ridgefield Park and fly over the residents there.
