Annual Eagle Watch at Chickasaw National Recreation Area

February 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


Sulphur, Okla.– Chickasaw National Recreation Area staff will host this year’s Eagle Watch on February 4, 2023. This free event begins at 9 a.m. inside the Travertine Nature Center. Visitors will join a ranger for a fun and educational presentation about the bald eagle. Afterward, visitors will use their own vehicles to follow park staff to Lake of the Arbuckles. Participants are encouraged to bring binoculars. Spotting scopes will set up at designated eagle “hot spot” locations. Please dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.

Additional activities will be hosted at the Chickasaw Cultural Center in the afternoon.

During migration season, approximately 2,000 eagles make their winter homes near lakes and rivers in various locations across Oklahoma. Lake of the Arbuckles is a popular roosting destination for some of these magnificent birds of prey.
