Reelfoot Lake State Park is offering daily Eagle Tours again this year. During the winter months Reelfoot Lake, in northwestern Tennessee, is home to approximately 200 American Bald Eagles and spectacular numbers of waterfowl.
Buses leave the park's Visitor Center at 10 a.m. CT every day through the end of February. Naturalists join each tour to describe the lake's earth-shaking past and its current status. Tours typically stop at places where eagles are commonly seen, and naturalists set up spotting scopes to allow visitors a closer look. Participants are encouraged to bring their own binoculars as well.
Tours cost $5 per person and reservations must be made by calling (731) 253-9652. Now's the time to make plans to join Interpretive Specialists Jerry Hall, David Haggard and the entire Reefoot Lake team for their annual showcase of winter wildlife.
