Eagles are Flying once again over Lake of the Arbuckles!
The annual return of the bald eagles to the Chickasaw National Recreation Area is always a cause for celebration during the winter season! This special event is a collaboration between the Chickasaw Cultural Center and the National Park Service to highlight this magnificent bird. More details to come!
The American bald eagle almost reached the point of extinction, but the combined efforts of many private citizens, elected officials and government agencies led to the removal of bald eagles from the endangered species list in 2007. This increase in the eagle population allows us the privilege of seeing these birds in the wild. Come join the Chickasaw National Recreation Area for Bald Eagle Watch 2017!
Afterwards, make a special trip over to the Chickasaw Visitor Center located right next to the CNRA! This new center is a nature lover's paradise, designed to provide information and tell the story of the Chickasaw National Recreation Area.The 8,500 square-foot facility features an information desk and kiosks, a multi-purpose gallery, gift shop, media room, pergola style patio area, public restrooms, bike share program and complimentary coffee service! Stick around and shop for cool nature related books and items, American Indian jewelry and handcrafted gifts, Chickasaw Country travel souvenirs and more! Also, be sure to check out the beautiful works of art and local photography by Native American artists on display!
