Saturday, July 8, 10 AM-11 AM: Will I Ever See Bald Eagles Over My Property?
$10.00 for adults, kids free. We often get calls from people who have sighted eagles on or near their property. They ask if they should call the DNR or someone else to notify them of the sighting. There is actually an “eagle counter” for our Lower Peninsula. His name is Jerry Weinrich, and he counts eagle nests every spring by flying over the entire area and GPS-ing the locations of every nest. Join us to learn more about the status of eagles in our state, and find out what Jerry believes their future is. With wildlife biologist and eagle expert Jerry Weinrich.
