Winter is peak season for bald eagle viewing in Land Between the Lakes! Both our year-round resident eagles and visiting winter “snowbirds” are out looking for fish around the lakes. Join this van tour to discover favorite bays, shorelines, and roosting spots of bald eagles. We’ll search for these majestic birds, as they soar through the sky and perch in the trees, and maybe even catch one in action hunting for fish! Our naturalists will help you spot eagles and other wildlife, as well as zoom in with spotting scopes for a closer look.

When the nights were long and cold, having a good light to guide your way was essential. Traditional beeswax candles were a staple on the 1850s farm. Come out and try your hand at dipping a candle and find out how many dips you need to make a candle that you can take home and use at your own homeplace.
Come get a sneak peek at something new on the farm! We’re developing a walking trail with plenty of information about the trees you’ll see in the woods all around the region. Come to enjoy the views, or brush up on your dendrology. Why not both?
