If you have a horse, you can take an eagle watch tour from horseback in the area of Sarge Creek Campground, U.S. Corps of Engineers. For those without horses, four other viewing tours are led during the day. There are presentations on the history of the eagle and its habitat, why the birds like to winter in the Kaw Nation area, which has the highest concentration of eagles in the state, and the eagle’s importance to Native Americans. For those interested in wildlife in general, there are presentations on wildlife rehabilitation, the wildlife around us, and then Jean’s presentation on getting involved in wildlife rehabilitation work.
The event is sponsored by the Kaw Nation, Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Sutton Avian Research Foundation. Anyone in this area interested in participating can get details at (580)762-9494, (877)671-6985, or on line at www.kawlake.com.
