Spotting a bald eagle used to be a rare occurrence for North Carolinians, but now the bird, once nearly extinct in North America, is making a comeback. Thanks to conservation efforts and the release of 29 young eagles in Hyde County in 1983, the bald eagle is soaring and thriving in Carolina and nationwide.
There’s an opportunity to learn more about bald eagles and their success story in North Carolina with the Bald Eagle Discovery Hike at Jordan Lake State Recreation Area on March 15 at 10 a.m. During the moderate 2-7-mile hike, you’ll learn about the bald eagle’s comeback as you look for them during the hike. Bring water, snacks and binoculars. Meet at the New Hope Overlook Recreation Area, the trailhead near the boat ramp. For more information, visit the Jordan Lake Recreation Area website.
