Little Neck Run Closed for Nesting Bald Eagles

Eagle in Tree Simpson small

This closure will help reduce disturbance and protect the eagles during this sensitive time. Favorable locations to view eagles and other wildlife exist along the Black Tupelo trail at Indian Landing and at refuge overlooks along the Carmans River, with the use of a spotting scope or binoculars. As always, visitors are reminded to obey closed area boundary signs and to adhere to refuge regulations. Photo courtesy of Jim Simpson.
