Preserve Fones Cliff a very important bald eagle habitat

Fones Cliff is one of the most important eagle habitats in the Eastern United States. Generally at least 50 eagles are in the area, they nest there, they flock there, and it is an important resting place for migratory eagles.

Real estate development and strip mining are threatening this fragile habitat. Although Fones Cliff is a targeted acquisition area for the Rappahannock River Wildlife Refuge, Congress has never appropriated funding for the acquisition.

Let's protect our national bird by protecting this very important place!
