MANHATTAN, Kan. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at Tuttle Creek Lake has launched a new Virtual Ranger program allowing visitors a safe and fun experience for multiple exploration activities around the lake. The first set of virtual activities offers Quick Response codes allowing exploring Rangers to self-navigate to prime eagle viewing and learning locations around Tuttle Creek Lake. Quick Response codes will be posted at Tuttle Creek starting January 2nd, 2021.
Eagle Day is perfect for people of all ages and backgrounds. Visitors should dress for the weather. Due to the pandemic, we will not provide spotting scopes or binoculars this year, thus visitors are encouraged to bring their own.
Bald eagles have made a remarkable comeback from a population low of some 417 nesting pairs in 1967 to over 10,000 pairs today. Tuttle Creek is home to several nests and provides prime habitat for Bald Eagles and other birds of prey. Viewing opportunities are plentiful if you know where to look – join us at virtually for Eagle Day to learn more! www.nwk.usace.army.mil/Locations/District-Lakes/Tuttle-Creek-Lake/Virtual-Ranger/
