WHY: Become a citizen scientist and help us in tracking and documenting eagle activity at the lake. We will be conducting Shenango River Lake’s first-ever Eagle Fest. Here at Shenango River Lake, we have several bald eagle nests around the lake and on the river. When the lake freezes and ice forms, open water becomes prime fishing for bald eagles. In the winter of 2019-2020, Shenango staff and local birders observed several eagles daily. On one very unforgettable day, we watched more than 90 juvenile and adult bald eagles.
