This has always been a favorite stop for our family and now that they are grown we still go out there, and now we can watch the Eagles nest from there.

If you have preschoolers like me, you've likely encountered the webcam aimed at the eagle's nest across the road from the fish hatchery. While it is fun and interesting to walk through the hatchery and look at the pools of trout, the eagles are the draw. This June there was one juvenile frequently sitting on one of the tank walls. It's a marvel to watch. Mom and dad eagle would also fly around, though less frequently than the young one. If you look hard enough, or have a bit of help, you can see the nest across the road high in a tree. Just remember that the nest tree is on private property and, for the resident's and eagle's sake, you must respect that.

We stopped at the fish hatchery when viewing the bald eagle nest directly across the street. The hatchery is in a beautiful area with bluffs and a small waterfall. There are benches to sit and soak up the atmosphere.
