http://tnstateparks.com/parks/event_details/reelfoot-lake/#/?event=reelfoot-eaglewaterfowl-tours-by-bus-21017--9am

9am Location: Meet at 9:00 a.m. at Reelfoot Lake State Park Visitors Center, 2595 Highway 21 E, Tiptonville, TN [masked], [masked]) Hike Leader: Allan J. Trently, West Regional Ecologist, Division of Natural Areas RSVP Contact: Allan J. Trently; Phone:[masked];... From the visitors center we will walk the boardwalk and scope out waterfowl on the lake and in the surrounding swamp. Then we will carpool to Keystone Pocket to check out the birds from the fishing pier and from along the Keystone Trail. Reelfoot Lake is one of the best places in Tennessee for wintering waterfowl. We should expect 100s (possibly 1000s) of ruddy ducks, mallards, gadwall, American white pelican and other waterfowl. Bald eagles are typically seen. The Keystone Trail is a 1.5-mile (one way) lakeside trail that runs through forest. The trail is considered easy for most people. Please bring binoculars and, if you have one, a spotting scope. The event will end around 11:00 a.m. but people can leave earlier. The trip leader, Allan J. Trently will be speaking on wetland ecosystems and bird habitat in the visitors center at 1:30 p.m. Also at 1:30, the park will be running an Eagle Tour. What to bring
Bring water, cameras/binoculars, and dress for being outdoors.

Important to know
We will also be doing a Eagle Bus Tour at 1:30 - posted as a separate event. You must register for each event separately! This event usually fills up quickly!
LUNCH - we usually do lunch after the hike at Boyette's - right across the street from the visitor's center!
