In Kansas, winter is one of the best times to view Bald Eagles. As waterways freeze further north, they migrate into Kansas searching for open water. The program will start with a 15-minute introduction to the history and adaptations of the Bald Eagle. We will then take a 1.5-mile hike down to the Arkansas River. Dress for the cold and windy conditions.

There are eight Bald Eagle nests in Cowley County. During this program we will visit one of the nest sites to give participants a chance to see adults and eaglets. Nest sites are Federally protected so spotting scopes will be a safe distance from the nest. Participants will meet and can view the eagles anytime between 10:00 am and 12:00 noon at Veterans Lake in Arkansas City.
