The Falls of the Ohio National Wildlife Conservation Area is a national, bi-state area on the Ohio River near Louisville, Ky.
Falls of the Ohio State Park is hosting a Raptor Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. March 19 and an eagle watch from 2 to 4 p.m. March 20.
The Raptor Day will include two programs from the Dwight Chamberlain Raptor Center at Hardy Lake – Raptors of the Day at 11 a.m., and Predators of the Night at 2 p.m.
Other activities include looking at feathers under a microscope, matching nests with the birds that make them, matching birds with their preferred food, building an osprey nest with one hand, bird watching from the Interpretive Center’s deck, a birding hike, and coloring pages children can take home.
This event requires admission to the Interpretive Center, which is $9 for visitors ages 12 and older and $7 for ages 5 to 11. Younger children will be admitted free. A state parks annual pass covers the $2 parking fee, but not admission.
The park’s eagle watch will be at the George Rogers Clark home site. Bald eagles nest on Shippingport Island in the Ohio River, and osprey nest by McAlpine locks. Spotting scopes and birding experts will help visitors find the birds.
