Bald Eagle Tour at Millerton Lake

Bald Eagle Tour at Millerton Lake

Animals
These four-hour tours allow visitors to explore the lake while searching for the majestic Bald Eagle, which many people know as the United States’ official emblem. Millerton Lake is host to both migratory and resident Bald Eagles. Some are known to migrate from North Central Canada each winter and spend the season fishing before returning north. The tour begins with an orientation to the bird and its habitat at the historic Fresno County Courthouse. Following the orientation, visitors will board an interpretive barge operated by a State Park Ranger and travel out onto the lake. With the guidance of park staff and volunteers, visitors may be able to see a variety of eagles in their winter habitat. "These birds have been migrating to this site for thousands of years," said biologist Michael Smith who volunteers at Millerton Lake State Recreation Area. “More often than not while on a tour, you’re going to see several bald eagles." Binoculars and hot chocolate will be provided on the vessel. Tours will run every Saturday and Sunday through February 25, 2018. Participants should wear warm, layered clothing. Tours meet at the historic Fresno County Courthouse at 8:00 a.m. and visitors should plan to return to their vehicles by noon. Space is limited and reservations are highly recommended as tours sell out each year. Special group pricing may be available. Call (559) 822-2332 or email millertonlake.eagletours@parks.ca.gov to reserve your tour.
