Seeing Bald Eagles

By Jennifer Keith
From Springdale, Arkansas

My name is Jennifer Keith and I’ve lived in Springdale, Arkansas for 20 years. When I think of the Ozarks, Beaver Lake is one of the key aspects that really makes me think of this area.

One of my favorite memories specifically of Beaver Lake was when a few years ago my dad came to town from Wisconsin and we took a boat tour in the winter to see the bald eagles. It was a cold and dreary day but it was so much fun. We learned so much about the eagles and their story of why they come to the Ozarks for the winter.
