Afternoon eagle watches will be offered Feb. 5, 12 and 19 at Salamonie Lake through DNR’s Upper Wabash Interpretive Services (UWIS).

Participants must call and speak to UWIS staff to register and choose a date and afternoon time when they will meet at the Salamonie Lake Nature Center, according to a provided news release.

A call-in platform will be used for the audio guided caravan.

• Upon arrival, participants may visit restrooms in the Nature Center, then return to their vehicles.

• Participants, if possible, should have a cellphone to access the call-in platform.

• Be mindful of Indiana state law concerning driving and hand-held cellular devices.

• If available, bring binoculars, cameras and spotting scopes. Shared visual aids will also be available on site.

• Be sure to have plenty of fuel in your gas tank. All caravan trips will include a stop to view a nesting site, a stop to view a feeding area and will end near dark at a bald eagle roosting area near Mississinewa Lake.

• There will be some walking on flat surfaces. Those who need accessible parking should request it during registration.

Participants will be able to warm up with hot food and drink items available for a freewill donation at the roost site through the Friends of Upper Wabash Interpretive Services.

For safety, Frances Slocum Road between Ind. 124 and CR 550E in Miami County will be closed for this event.
