Indiana Dunes SP to lead eagle tour
A field trip to view Indiana's winter bald eagles will head from Indiana Dunes State Park to Turkey Run State Park from Jan. 25-27.
Participants will travel by motor coach and stay two nights in the Turkey Run Inn.
The tour will offer a chance to see birds of prey up close; view the beauty of Turkey Run's ice- covered canyons; and visit the Cayuga power plant, home to the largest population of mid-winter migratory eagles in Indiana.
Cost is $339 per person for a two-person reservation. For those traveling alone, the single-person cost is $399. Included in the fees are two nights lodging, all meals except Sunday's lunch, special interpretive programming, park entrance fees and trail guiding.
Space is limited and advance registration is required.
