Dates Changed For Eagle Watch Weekend At Dale Hollow
FRANKFORT, Ky. – Dale Hollow Lake State Resort Park is rescheduling one of its Eagle Watch Weekends in January.
The park will cancel the eagle weekend scheduled for Jan. 30-31 and move it to Jan. 16-17. The change is being made due to the availability of a barge used on the lake for tours.
Dale Hollow is one of four Kentucky State resort parks that hold Eagle Watch Weekends in January and February each year. Here are the dates for the weekends:
Dale Hollow State Resort Park (800-325-2282): Jan. 16-17; Jan. 23-24, Feb. 20-21.
Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park (800-325-0146): Jan. 16-18.
Lake Barkley State Resort Park (800-325-1708): Jan. 30-Feb. 1.
Kenlake State Resort Park (800-325-0143): Feb. 6-8.
For 40 years, the Kentucky State Parks have offered Eagle Watch Weekends, a chance to view the eagles from land and water and learn about the national symbol and other wildlife.
The tours take place on an excursion yacht, barges, pontoon boats and by van, depending upon the location and tour. They are led by state park naturalists and Department of Fish and Wildlife biologists.
Guests should bring warm clothes, rain gear and binoculars. These trips can take place under extreme weather conditions. These resorts offer lodges, cottages, and restaurants. Registration is required for the Eagle Watch Weekends. Call the parks for details and fee information or visit: www.parks.ky.gov and look under “Featured Events” for “Eagle Watch Weekends.”
The Eagle Watch Weekends at Kentucky Dam Village, Lake Barkley and Kenlake will include an option to view eagles from the CQ Princess, a 96-foot yacht. Guests can view eagles from inside the CQ Princess or from outside decks.
The weekends are offered in cooperation with the Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
