Nature lovers are encouraged to make plans for a unique Kentucky State Park tradition – Eagle Watch Weekends.
The park system will sponsor this wildlife-watching opportunity as bald eagles gather around the major lakes of western Kentucky to look for food.
State Park officials say from January to February, visitors will be able to tour the parks to observe and learn about eagles.
Ticket prices for the tours range from $25 to $50 a person with most tours to last from two to 3½ hours.
The weekends also include an evening program on birds of prey.
The parks, phone numbers and dates for the 2013 Eagle Watch Weekends are: Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park from January 12th through the 13th, Lake Barkley State Resort Park from January 26 through the 27th and Kenlake State Resort Park from February 2nd and 3rd.
Visitors are urged to bring warm clothes, rain gear and binoculars as park officials say these trips can take place under extreme weather conditions.
