About Duke Farms:
Located on the 2700 acre Duke Farm property in Hillsborough, this eagle nest has been observed on the farm since 2005. In 2008 a camera was setup by Duke Farms in a neighboring sycamore tree 110 feet up, capturing footage of nesting seasons in 2009 and 2010. This camera permits the public to get a unique glimpse of the nesting, feeding and fledgling of Bald Eagles in NJ.
Duke Farms in Hillsborough, N.J., is one of the largest privately-owned parcels of undeveloped land in the state. 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.
