Reservation lines will open December 19 for the 2015 Winter Season of the Bald Eagle Observation Area at the Shepaug Hydroelectric Dam in Southbury, Conn. Observation times this season will be Wednesdays, Saturdays, and Sundays between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. beginning Saturday, December 19, 2015, and running through Wednesday, March 9, 2016. Please be aware, however, that the observation area is closed both Christmas Day and New Year's Day. All are welcome and admission is free of charge, but advance reservations are required. Specialists will be on site with high-powered telescopes to help visitors see the eagles in action and to answer questions about America's national symbol. Visitors are encouraged to dress warmly and to bring binoculars if possible, given the limited number of onsite telescopes.
