Eco-Friendly Traveling

Eco-Friendly Traveling in Connecticut

Some people say a travel experience should make an impact on the traveler, not the place. In other words, if you are looking for travel that lets you make the most of your visit, without taking a toll on the environment, consider Connecticut. You can even arrive by public transportation and leave your car at home. Then, once you’re here, you can stay in an environmentally conscious hotel, go on eco-friendly adventures and more.

Bald Eagle

Tours that Soar! Eagle Watching in Connecticut

When you see an American Bald Eagle in person, you immediately understand why this majestic creature is such a symbol of our national pride. And seeing one is easier than you think, because Connecticut is the winter home of eagles who travel south from Maine and Canada when their habitats freeze over. They come here to feed, and can be found nesting along our major rivers and at large reservoirs. And as the eagles mate in January here, you’re more likely to see a pair or a nest alongside the water, where they can easily find fish.

These tour operators and wildlife experts know where the nests are, when the birds are active and the best ways to view them — from the water, from the trail, even from a train! Most eagle watching tours need reservations, so be sure to visit the links below for tour times and directions, or search "eagles" on our Events page for upcoming tours and activities.
