These black bear cubs, born around mid-January were large enough for tagging by the Pennsylvania Game Commission. They will spend time in the den with their mother until April, then they will emerge into the world for the first time. Thank you to Scott Rando and the PA Game Commission for the sneak peak at these adorable cubs. The full article will run in the River Reporter next week.

What does Booker T. Washington National Monument and Upper Delaware have in common? Booker T. Washington tells both the story of slavery and the early years of young Washington. As for Upper Delaware rumors abound that the Delaware and Hudson Canal was part of the Underground Railroad. It may never be known for sure but makes for an interesting idea. #undergroundrailroad #slavery #bookertwashington #rovingrangers #upperdelaware at Booker T. Washington National Monument

What a great picture of the Roebling Bridge. Thanks to Scott Rando for sharing. #roeblingbridge #upperdelaware #findyourpark at Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct
Lackawaxen and the Upper Delaware received another blanket of snow yesterday leaving the area a winter wonderland. #upperdelaware #winter #snow #roeblingbridge #zanegrey at Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania
Look back to Friday’s storm. at Roebling's Delaware Aqueduct
The warm weather has certainly melted a lot of our ice along the river but only just in time for a spring snow storm. Be safe if you are traveling throughout the river valley tomorrow.

This immature eagle was spotted along the river recently, can you spot what is wrong with this picture? Unfortunately this birds left leg is missing. This unusual situation might be detrimental to a bird with out a mate, however this resourceful creature seems to be otherwise healthy and appears to have a full crop. Did you know that bald eagles are not only hunters, they are very opportunistic and will scavenge for food.

With warmer weather take some time to hike the Mongaup River Trail. You never know what you will find! #upperdelaware #lichen #takeahike #mongauprivertrail at Upper Delaware Scenic & Recreational River
Our wintering population of bald eagles are beginning to head back north to prepare their nests. That means this will be the last weekend to visit the Delaware Highlands Conservancy at their field office in Lackawaxen and at the Ten Mile River and Lackawaxen eagle viewing areas.
One of our eagle watchers snapped this beautiful picture of a mature bald eagle in flight last weekend.

Today we celebrate National Engineering Week and specifically John Augustus Roebling who had such an incredible impact on not only the small town of Lackawaxen, Pennsylvania but on a national scope as well. We still drive over his most successful works today, including the Brooklyn Bridge in New York, the Cincinnati-Covington Bridge in Ohio and of course the Delaware Aqueduct in New York and Pennsylvania. Bridges such as the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and the George Washington Bridge in New York and New Jersey were not designed by Roebling but rather are reinforced by Roebling’s patented wire cable rope manufactured right down the river in Trenton, New Jersey.
The Delaware Aqueduct or Roebling Bridge as we know it today, is not only a National Historic Landmark but also a National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. It has been documented as a part of the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) "as possessing exceptional engineering interest and as being worthy of the most careful preservation for the benefit of future generations”. #Upperdelaware #findyourpark #johnroebling #nationalengineeringweek #throwbackthursday
This year marks the 40th anniversary of Upper Delaware S&RR as well as the 50th anniversary of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. Many thanks to President Jimmy Carter for all he did to conserve and protect many of America’s rivers. Learn more about President Carter by visiting @jimmycarternps

A fresh coating of snow really makes the barn at the Corwin Farm Ranger Station stand out beautifully. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #delawareandhudsoncanal #barns #WSR50
Eagle watchers spotted an eagle flying overhead. There are only about two more weeks left to see the migratory birds before they head back north. #upperdelaware #findyourpark #baldeagles #WSR50 #lackawaxen
Don’t let today’s warm temperatures of 53 degrees fool you, remember that groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter. If you do decide to head out on the river, remember the mandatory cold water wear is still in effect until April 30th. #upperdelaware #wearit #findyourpark #fishing #mandatorycoldwaterwear

Volunteers from the Delaware Highlands Conservancy have their spotting scopes set up in search of bald eagles. Visit them on weekends until the end of the month from 10-2. They are stationed at the Ten Mile River and Lackawaxen accesses. #upperdelaware #baldeagles #findyourpark #volunteering #delawarehighlandsconservancy
