Eagle Watch Weekend

08:00 am to 07:00 pm
Eagle Pointe Golf Resort (2250 E. Pointe Road)
http://www.eaglesatlakemonroe.com/ealmeww_home.htm

Eagle Watch Weekend offers an opportunity to see at least twenty-eight eagles, forty-nine other species of birds, and life birds for several people on almost every outing. It doesn’t get much better than this. That was what we wrote about the 2012 event and the 13th Annual Eagle Watch Weekend this year is shaping up to be even better.

Once again, we’ll be based at the fabulous Eagle Pointe Resort just a stone’s throw from Lake Monroe. We’ll have plenty of outings with chances to see bald eagles in the wild every day. Join us for the entire weekend or any part of it you would like. See website for further information.
