MONROE, LA (KNOE) - Looking for an adventure? Join a park interpreter for a guided eagle-watching tour on DeGray Lake. We'll search for wintering bald eagles, ospreys, loons, herons, grebes, ducks, and more. Bring binoculars if you have some and be sure to dress for the weather. It is normally chillier and windier on the lake than it is on land. We suggest you dress in layers and don't be afraid to bring too much warm clothing Reservations can be made beginning noon the day before at the marina, (501) 865-5841. A minimum of six passengers must be registered one hour prior to departure. Please arrive 10-15 minutes early, because the boat must depart on time.
