Eagle Awareness Weekend 1, at Lake Guntersville State Park

January 20 @ 5:30 pm - January 22 @ 12:00 pm

Eagle Awareness Weekends are unique. Created to coincide with Alabama’s Bald Eagle Restoration Program in 1985, steeped in the tradition of birding lore and legend, and led by some of the best conservationists and birders in the field, these Friday through Sunday Lake Guntersville State Park events bring people of diverse backgrounds and common interests together in one of the most beautiful parks in Alabama to observe and learn about one of the most mesmerizing avian species on the planet. Eagle Awareness Weekends feature live bird demonstrations and programs provided by notable speakers, guided safaris for viewing eagles in their natural habitat, and the natural beauty of the mountains and Lake Guntersville.

Each year we welcome hundreds of guests to experience and learn about the natural history of these majestic eagles, other birds of prey, and wild creatures. Exclusive opportunities are offered each year during Eagle Awareness weekends through our packages, including: lodging, two breakfasts and one dinner, a welcome packet, VIP access to presentations, discounts at the restaurant and gift shop, photo opportunities with birds of prey, activities for children, engagement with featured sponsors, one-on-one access with the naturalists, and memories that last for a lifetime. It’s no wonder that these weekends are the perfect gift for the one that has “everything”. These weekends fill quickly so we encourage you to reserve your package as soon as possible.
