Free one-hour Eagle Watch

At 9am Sunday, Jan. 30, the free, one-hour Eagle Watch led by local expert Matt West will be at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Tioga-Hammond Lakes Connecting Channel Overlook near the spillway at 94-98 South Main Street in Tioga Borough. This is one of the best spots in the area to see bald eagles.

Bring a camera and binoculars. A limited number of spotting scopes and binoculars will be available.

West, educational program coordinator for the Mill Cove Environmental Area and tourist information counselor at the PA Department of Transportation Keystone Welcome Center at Tioga on Route 15, will answer questions about bald eagles and talk about their lives, the Pennsylvania Game Commission’s reintroduction program, how to identify this raptor and other areas in Tioga County where people can go to see them.

The Tioga County Woodland Owners Association is co-sponsoring this event with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and will provide free hot cocoa and snacks for those attending.

To get to the Tioga-Hammond Lakes Connecting Channel from Wellsboro, take Route 287 north for 16.9 miles to the stop sign in Tioga Borough. At the stop sign, turn right onto South Main Street in Tioga Borough and drive to the end of the street, wind past the park entrance gate and drive by the spillway to the top of the hill where the road ends at the connecting channel parking lot. It is approximately 1.8 miles from the stop sign. For more information, call the Ives Run Visitor Information Center at 570-835-5281.
