|Shiloh Battlefield is hosting bald eagle interpretive programs Sunday and May 23. |
“The public will have an opportunity to meet Shiloh Battlefield’s two most prominent current residents,” superintendent Woody Harrell said. “We are fortunate to have this nesting pair of bald eagles return to the park a third consecutive year to once again raise their young. The nest site is easily accessible to the visiting public, offering perhaps one the finest eagle viewing opportunities in the Southeastern United States.”
The programs are scheduled for 1 p.m.
“These programs are designed to be a short introduction to Shiloh Battle-field’s nesting pair of bald eagles, offering insight on their history at the park, and discuss the present stage of their eaglets’ development,” Johnson said.
This program will take place in Cloud Field at the nesting site and last about one hour.
Those wishing to participate will need to purchase the park entrance permit at the Shiloh Battlefield Visitor Center. Admission to the park is $3 per person or $5 per family, with children 15 years of age and younger admitted free.
To sign up to attend one of the eagle programs, contact the Shiloh Battlefield Visitor Center at (731) 689-5696 or e-mail Johnson at Marcus_Johnson@nps.gov.
