New Jersey's Division of Fish and Wildlife recently released the New Jersey Bald Eagle Report, 2017.
And the report has some great news about Patcong Creek. Our two pairs nesting in the Patcong Creek produced three fledglings this summer. They hatched in March and fledged in June.
The Division's Endangered and Nongame Species Program biologists have done amazing work reviving the Eagle Population in our state. Check out the chart below for a snapshot of recovery.

And if you want to support Patcong Creek Foundation's work to protect the Patcong Creek—home to two Bald Eagle nests—you can symbolically adopt an eagle through the foundation's Adopt a Creek Critter program.
Though the Patcong Creek Foundation has been around for a few years, it has recently grown up. With the hiring of an Executive Director, the foundation has been able to tackle projects that have been on the "to-do list".
The Patcong Creek Foundation is known locally due to the good causes it contributes to in the Somers Point, NJ area. But, the work of protecting a body of water that is:
should be made more public.
The more people know, the more they will want to help us in our mission.
So, the first phase of growing up is the launch of the new Patcong Creek Foundation website. Please read through the different pages to learn about what it is we do, why we care, and why you should care.
Consider becoming a member or Adopting a Creek Critter—both would make great Christmas Gifts!
Thank you for taking the time to check out our new site.
If you have any questions or comments, leave them below or e-mail the Executive Director—Lisa Bender.
