Duke Energy Corporation : Eagle Viewing Day Planned at Duke Energy s Cayuga Station

01/12/2012 | 04:20pm US/Eastern

PLAINFIELD, IND. -

Duke Energy will hold its 17th annual bald eagle viewing day on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2012, at its Cayuga electric power plant along the Wabash River about 35 miles north of Terre Haute, Ind. The event is free and open to the public from
9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Reservations are not necessary.

"Eagle Viewing Day is one of Duke Energy's most popular public programs," said Frank Klopfstein, general manager at Cayuga Station. "People tell us every year how much they appreciate the opportunity to see the eagles in their natural habitat."

The American Eagle Foundation will be on hand again to present its "Eagle and Birds of Prey Program" at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The presentation includes captive live eagles.

Duke Energy also is sponsoring school presentations with the eagles. The American Eagle Foundation will be at North Vermillion Elementary School and Southeast Fountain Elementary School on Jan. 26 and at Davis Park Elementary School and Franklin Elementary School in Terre Haute on Jan. 27.

During most years, the area near Cayuga Station hosts the state's largest population of mid-winter migratory bald eagles. When area lakes and streams freeze over in the winter, warm water discharged from the Cayuga power plant keeps the river area by the plant ice free, which attracts fish on which the eagles feed.

Eagle viewers should dress warmly and may want to bring binoculars, cameras and spotting scopes. In the event of bad weather, no backup day is planned.

Duke Energy monitors and works in collaboration with groups such as the Indiana Department of Natural Resources to help manage endangered species found on or near its properties statewide. More information on Duke Energy's environmental programs can be found on the Internet at .

Any questions on the program should be directed to 1-800-832-3143. Cayuga Station is located approximately 35 miles north of Terre Haute, Ind., on State Road 63. The station can be reached by taking I-74 to State Road 63 and then traveling south about 15 miles, or by taking U.S. 36 to State Road 63 and then going north approximately 15 miles.

Duke Energy Indiana's operations provide approximately 7,000 megawatts of owned electric capacity to approximately 790,000 customers, making it the state's largest electric supplier. "A Century of Service and Innovation" is the Indiana operating company's year-long celebration of 100 years of service as of Sept. 5, 2012. The celebration is an opportunity to reflect on the Indiana company's history, its successes, and ways to strengthen the long-standing partnership among its employees, its customers and the communities it serves.

Headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., Duke Energy is a Fortune 500 company traded on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol DUK.
