The survey helps by identifying key bald eagle resources when access to open water is most restricted at Arkabutla Lake.  

Participants from all ages are encouraged to attend the Bald Eagle Survey. Participants are encouraged to wear warm clothing, and bring binoculars and their own vehicles to travel to areas of interest around the lake. 

Refreshments will not be provided.
