Jan 23 at 3 p.m. EST: Facebook LIVE Identifying Bald Eagles
Bald eagles don’t acquire their distinctive white head and tail until they are 5 years old, so distinguishing juvenile eagles from other large birds can actually be a little challenging. Join interpretive naturalist Jill Vance for tips on how to recognize juvenile eagles and figure out how old they are.
Jan 25 @ 3 p.m. EST: Facebook LIVE Bald Eagle Mating, Nesting, and Fledging
Join interpretive naturalist Jill Vance to learn about how bald eagles form mating pairs, build their nests, and raise their young! (If you visit Monroe Lake this winter and early spring, you may get lucky enough to observe these activities directly.)
Jan 26 @ 11:30 a.m. EST: Facebook LIVE Return of the Bald Eagle
By 1900, eagles had abandoned Indiana due to extensive habitat loss. But in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Monroe Lake was home to a IDNR program that endeavored to return this bird to our skies. Join interpretive naturalist Jill Vance to hear the story of how bald eagles were successfully reintroduced to Indiana.
