Visit our five viewing stations around the lake and learn about this majestic bird and their amazing journey back from the brink of extinction and the challenges they face today.

Before you start your adventure lets take a few quick moments to talk about eagle viewing etiquette.

Keep your distance– Use binoculars or scopes– keep the noise level down– don’t disrupt birds 

Warning: Harassing, disturbing or injuring a bald eagle is a federal offense and carries a penalty of up to $10,000 and/or one year in jail. Remember that bald eagles should remain undisturbed, and it is important that they conserve energy during the winter months.
