In addition to interpretive lectures, presentations and films in the theater, spotting scopes and a limited number of binoculars will be available outside to view the roosting eagles. The event is free and the site is accessible to visitors with disabilities; visitors are encouraged to bring their own scopes, binoculars and cameras.

If the event is canceled due to inclement weather, it will be rescheduled for Saturday, Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please check our Facebook page and website for updated information.
