Jordan Lake State Recreation Area is one of the largest summertime homes of the bald eagle, the symbol of
the United States for more than 200 years. The population of eagles in the Jordan Lake area has increased
dramatically since the flooding of the reservoir in 1983.
Vast, undisturbed areas provide the perfect home for the bald eagle; there's plenty of fish to eat and a
mature forest for roosting. Although protection efforts have increased the numbers of this mighty bird,
it still remains a protected species. Interpretive programs about the bald eagle are conducted throughout the
year at Jordan Lake. Join one of our programs or bird watch on your own.
