Osprey Watch at Indiana’s Patoka Lake June 23
Wednesday May 16, 2018   |
Look for ospreys by boat and by car at Patoka Lake during a special program on June 23.
The osprey watch runs from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
 
Ospreys are a unique, migratory raptor that frequents Indiana during breeding season and returns to South America for winter. DNR nongame bird biologist Allisyn Gillet will share information about the state’s osprey reintroduction program and how the species has made a remarkable return.
Cost is $15 per person and includes a provided lunch. Advance registration is required by calling the Patoka Lake Nature Center at 812-685-2447. This event is limited to 55 people.
 
Dress for the weather and don’t forget to bring binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras. 
Patoka Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2953.htm) is at 3084 N. Dillard Road, Birdseye, IN 47513.
