6th annual eagle watch at Salamonie

– The sixth annual eagle watch will be held Feb. 2 and 3 at the Salamonie Interpretive Center in Lost Bridge West State Recreation Area, off Indiana 105 in western Huntington County. Both watches begin at 3 p.m.

The program will begin with a brief overview of Indiana bald eagles, then move to the roost to watch the eagles come in for the evening. A bus will be available, for a $4 fee.

On Feb. 2, Belle the Bald Eagle from As Wings of Eagles Inc. will attend the watch with her handler, Zach Walker.

On Feb. 3, Jefferson, the bald eagle from Soarin’ Hawk Raptor Rehab, will attend. Both eagle handlers will accept donations.

Registration is requested. Participants should dress for the weather and bring binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras. Coffee and hot chocolate will be available for a donation.

For the safety of the watch participants, Frances Slocum Road, between Indiana 124 and County Road 550 East in Miami County will be closed.
