Over the months of November, December, January, and February, 35 eagle watch cruises have been scheduled for Hobbs State Park – Conservation Area.

- Saturday December 4, 2021
- Saturday January 8, 2022

Instruction with hand outs will begin on board the Hobbs State Park boat promptly at 2:30 pm. Topics Tim will cover:
- Equipment needed to photograph eagles

- Other good spots to photograph eagles in NWA
There will also be an interpreter on board as usual to talk about eagles and to answer your wildlife, Beaver Lake, and Hobbs State Park questions.
