Eagle and Loon Watch tours starting January 20

Tuesday, January 16, 2024 - The Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge and Tenkiller State Park are hosting their annual Eagle Tour and Loon Watch starting January 20.


The event is scheduled for the following Saturdays: January 20 and 27, February 3, 10, 17, and 24; and March 2.


The Eagle tours are being held at the refuge headquarters from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. The Loon watches begin at 2 p.m. and will be located at the Tenkiller State Park Driftwood Nature Center.


Guests will begin the tour with a presentation by Tenkiller State Park naturalist Leann Bunn and Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge education liaison Chad Ford.


The excursion, which takes place on a passenger bus, allows individuals to observe the nature of southern bald eagles and various loon species in their natural habitat.


Guests will get the opportunity to observe the eagles in action as they attend to their nests and eaglets, hunt for food, and soar through the Oklahoma sky.


Binoculars and spotting scopes are available but limited in supply.


Guests are welcome to bring their own spotting devices to allow for a closer and more detailed view at various points of interest along the tour.


Both tours are free to attend, and no pre-registration is required.


For additional information or inquiries, you can contact the Refuge at 918-773-5251.


The Eagle and Loon tour is being co-sponsored by AARP Oklahoma.
