Bernheim’s staff facilitates research within our borders and beyond which helps guide our land stewardship and management practices. One of the most exciting projects has been tracking the migration of a golden eagle, named Harper by popular vote. Beginning in 2015, Bernheim outfitted Harper with a tracking device to follow his northern migration in the spring. His tracker was replaced in 2018, and we were able to track his progress to the same location in Canada and his migration back to Bernheim in the winter. Follow along with Harper’s migration progress and learn about the golden eagle research going on at Bernheim.
