"They used to talk about the eagles nesting here in the 1920s and '30s. Then they disappeared, just like all over Long Island. I call the program Nichols’ Eaglet, because if it weren’t for the Nichols family donating their land for preservation, as well as the house, the eagles would have had no place to come home to. Now we have our first eagle nest in about eighty years. It’s a very historic event, and I'm delighted to have discovered it.”
Naturalist and Park Ranger MaryLaura Lamont oversees interpretive programs at the William Floyd Estate, as well as serving as the education chair of the Long Island Botanical Society.
