Bald eagle viewing day scheduled for Carbon County.

A chance to view and learn about bald eagles will be available to the public Feb. 1 as the Division of Wildlife Resources hosts its annual bald eagle day.

Admission is free with viewing times running from 8 a.m. to noon at the Carbon County site.

The local site will be located in Gordon Creek which is along Consumer's Road. The area is located between Helper and Price.

To reach the viewing site, take U. S. Highway 6 to Consumer's Road, which is just north of the Carbon County Golf Course. From here, travel west on Consumer's Road for about nine miles to the Gordon Creek wildlife management area.

Fewer bald eagles are expected at the site this year than past years, which may be due to unusually mild winter conditions in their summer range to the north. Visitors should dress for cold temperatures and breezy conditions.

Consumer's Road is plowed regularly but will be icy and/or muddy, depending on the time of day. Watch out for other vehicles, especially around curves.

No live birds will be exhibited at the site this year.
