CARLYLE LAKE – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in partnership with the Case-Halstead Library, Carlyle, IL will be hosting an Eagle Watch on Saturday, February 3, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the library.  At 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m., the World Bird Sanctuary will present “All About Eagles” and will bring a bald eagle to demonstrate the majestic flight and nature of this beautiful bird.  Everyone attending the event will have the opportunity to make an eagle craft and observe replicas of a bald eagle skull, talons and feathers to get a better understanding of the bird. Participants can also pick up a map at the library during the event and drive to various viewing locations at the lake. Park Rangers and volunteers will be on top the main dam and at the General Dean Recreation Area with spotting scopes to assist and answer questions. Everyone is encouraged to bring binoculars and dress accordingly for the weather. 

If you have any questions about the event, contact the Carlyle Lake Project Office at (618) 594-2484 or email at carlylelake@usace.army.mil.
