Celebrate the return of eagles to the Fox River Valley with Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge today.

On Saturday, Jan. 11, representatives from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Friends of Hackmatack National Wildlife Refuge, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and McHenry County Audubon will be on hand from 8 to 10 a.m. at locations along the Fox River and at Geneva Lake to help search for eagles and other birds using area waterways.

Volunteers and USFWS staff will be sharing views through spotting scopes and binoculars and helping novices identify the birds they see at the McHenry Dam, the Algonquin Dam, and the Carpenter Dam in Illinois and at Fontana Beach on Geneva Lake in Wisconsin.

Maps to all locations are posted and available at mccd.me/EagleMap20.
