"Eagles over Monroe" is an annual event that celebrates Monroe Lake's unique history with the Bald Eagle, as well as our designation as a "hotspot" on the Indiana Birding Trail. Join us for 4 special days of programs highlighting Bald Eagles and other birds!

Monroe Lake played a critical role in returning our nation's symbol to our state's skies. Thanks to the eagle reintroduction program that took place at Monroe Lake in the late 1980s, Indiana is now home to over 350 nesting pairs of Bald Eagles today! 

This year's event is co-sponsored by the Sassafras Audubon Society and Wild Birds Unlimited in Bloomington.
