Eagle Days planned at Smithville Lake

Eagle Days planned at Smithville Lake

January 3, 2012


Eagle Days will give the public a chance to view our
nationís symbol at Smithville Lake on
Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 5 and 6.

All events at Eagle Days are free.

The annual celebration of winter wildlife watching is hosted by the Missouri Department of Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Clay County Department of Parks and Recreation.

Headquarters for the event will be the Paradise Pointe Golf Course clubhouse in Little Platte Park, 18212 Golf Course Road. Wildlife exhibits, crafts and vendors will be offered in the clubhouse from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday and from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The staff from Operation Wildlife will present live eagle programs in the clubhouse on both days.

Spotting scopes will be set up at several locations around the lake and staff from the host agencies will help visitors watch migrating eagles and waterfowl. Lake officials counted about 50 bald eagles at various locations early this week, said Derek Dorsey, park manager for the Corps of Engineers. Ice has formed in some locations but pockets of open water remain and are holding 8,000 mallard ducks and 10,000 Canada geese.

All events at Eagle Days are free. For more information, call the Corps office at 816-532-0174.
