Eagles have been spotted more and more frequently in southwestern and south central Pennsylvania, but we are not familiar with specific sightings in the Mon River Towns or areas along the mid- and upper Monongahela River. However, experts tell us it is likely eagles are in the area.
In celebration, Mon River Towns, partnering with The National Aviary and the Mon Valley Alliance, will be running a bald eagle photo contest on Instagram!
On your next outing, safely snap a photo of your eagle sighting and post it on Instagram with the hashtag #RTPEagleSearch2017. Entries will be gathered weekly and submitted to a committee. The winner will be awarded a $25 gift card for confirmed sightings of bald eagles in or around the Mon River in the area between Elizabeth/West Elizabeth south to Point Marion, PA.
For more information and rules of the contest, visit monrivertowns.com.
If you unable to get a photo, we would still love to hear where you are seeing the eagles. Please direct message the Mon River Towns Facebook page, @RiverTownProgram, with the location, date, and time of day.
