The Bald Eagles return in late fall to Ouachita and nest here over the winter. Join us as we celebrate our bountiful bald eagle population with free barge rides and a free seminar that morning!
Every year Mountain Harbor Resort and Spa, located 12 miles east of Mount Ida, on the shores of Lake Ouachita, hosts a special weekend to highlight the natural beauty of Lake Ouachita and in particular its cherished Bald Eagles.
“Sharing the eagles with our customers, friends and neighbors is our way of giving enjoyment and sharing fellowship with our community”, stated Bill Barnes. “There’s nothing quite as inspiring as seeing the Bald Eagles in the wild, diving for fish or soaring overhead”.
Mountain Harbor Resort will offer a free seminar on Saturday, 23 February at the Marina featuring Rusty Scarborough,Senior Park Naturalist for Caddo Parish Parks & Recreation’s Walter B. Jacobs Memorial Nature Park in Shreveport, Louisiana. Following the presentation, Harbor’s marina will offer free barge tours to view the eagles on the lake starting at 1:00 that afternoon. Participants need to call the marina at 870-867-1212 or 870-867-1211 to make reservations for the barge tour. Space is limited!
