Join us for our annual Eagle Watch on Saturday, Jan. 27! This special event is a collaboration between the National Park Service and the Chickasaw Cultural Center to highlight this magnificent bird. 

The Eagle Watch begins with a ranger presentation at 9 a.m. at the Chickasaw National Recreation Area Travertine Nature Center. Following the presentation, guests are invited to meet at the Lake of the Arbuckles for an eagle observation. Park staff encourages participants to bring binoculars if possible, dress weather-appropriate and wear comfortable shoes. Spotting scopes will be provided at designated eagle "hot spot" locations. For more information regarding morning activities, please visit the National Park Service website, or call (580) 622-7234. 

Activities at the Chickasaw Cultural Center include make-and-take cultural crafts, healthy snacks, discounts in the Aaimpa' Cafe and retail shops, and a special showing of the PBS documentary "American Eagle" at 1 p.m. in the Anoli' Theater. Mr. Eagle will also be on campus to greet visitors!
