lbl 300GOLDEN POND, KY (11/29/12) – Bundle up in your favorite sweater, come outdoors, and experience the enchanting sights on a bald eagle viewing trip, presented again at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area. Van trips and river cruises will be offered.
 
Several opportunities are available to participate in eagle viewing trips during January and February. LBL guides take visitors to the best wildlife viewing hot spots on the 170,000-acre National Recreation Area. Visitors will most likely see migratory bald eagles, gulls, and other waterfowl, as well as native wildlife species, such as deer and turkey. Enjoy viewing the eagles December through February. Van trips meet and depart from the Golden Pond Visitor Center unless otherwise indicated. Dress appropriately for the weather, wear shoes suitable for moderate walking, and don’t forget to bring binoculars and field guides.
 
Back by popular demand, LBL hosts a weekend of river cruises January 19-21, including a special Martin Luther King, Jr. Day cruise January 21, for up close views of eagles from the water. Despite cold temperatures that usually keep people indoors, bald eagles thrive in winter conditions. What better way to view bald eagles than by relaxing on a river cruise in the comforts of the spacious and beautifully appointed CQ Princess? The 96-foot luxury yacht offers wonderful views from both outside on deck and indoors where it’s toasty warm!
 
Reservations and full deposits are required for all trips. Because eagle excursions are very popular, early reservations are encouraged. Gift certificates are available.
 
“LBL is a major wintering spot for bald eagles from northern areas such as Michigan and Canada,” stated Carrie Szwed, Nature Station Public Programs Coordinator. “Due to excellent coordination between state and federal agencies in past years to restore eagle habitats and populations, we have seen tremendous increases in eagles wintering and nesting in this area."
