New Meetup: Land Between the Lakes Eagle Hike

Announcing a new Meetup for Bowling Green Hiking Meetup!

What: Land Between the Lakes Eagle Hike

When: January 17,[masked]:30 AM

Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)

Meetup Description: Join us for a day of hiking and eagle watching at the Land Between the Lakes on the shores of Kentucky Lake. January and February are prime bird watching months as Bald Eagles (and maybe even Golden Eagles) from the Great Lakes region are overwintering in the balmy Kentucky weather.

We will most likely be hiking part of the North/ South trail and you should be prepared to travel 8-10 miles round trip. We will not go if it is raining or it is predicted to rain. Consult the weather reports before the trip. Dress warmly in layers, wear sturdy boots, and bring plenty of water and lunch. We will have a few spotting scopes and binoculars but if you have your own, please bring them.

Once we get to LBL, we'll check with the visitors center to find out if the eagles have been hanging out in any particular areas. If the birds are scattered about, we'll hike a section of the North/South trail from Sugar Bay to Duncan Lake (this is where the birds were hanging out at this time last year). After that we'll head over to the Woodsland Nature Station and hike around the Honkers Bay before heading back.
