THEY'RE BACK...THE EAGLES RETURN TO SMITH ROCK STATE PARK

THEY'RE BACK...THE EAGLES RETURN TO SMITH ROCK STATE PARK

It's nesting time again at Smith Rock State Park for both pairs of golden and bald eagles. Hiking trails remain open but some campsites and climbing route closures start February 17.
