From 1985 through 1991, 91 young bald eagles were released through the Alabama Non-game Wildlife Program in an effort to restore a nesting population of eagles within the state. Bald eagles have a strong tendency to return the vicinity where they learned to fly when they are ready to mate and raise their own young. This occurs when they are 4 or 5 years old. These guided field trips encourage public participation to attempt these views in the eagle’s natural environment. You will not want to forget your camera! Tours are free to the public and can be self-guided by downloading our 2016 eagle awareness brochure and following the map on the back. Guided tours are free of charge, other than the Cathedral Caverns field trip (Not an Eagle Tour), and meet at the Lodge; follow in your vehicle to locations.
