With the weather forecast, there probably won’t be much sledding or cross country skiing this weekend. Hiking will be slushy at best. Low lying trails like the Wabash Heritage Trail, trails 2, 3 and 4 at Prophetstown State Park may experience flooding.

Currently, the river is frozen enough that the eagles may be hunting food near the downtown area. Watch the trees near the Harrison Bridge for the raptors. If you are driving north on SR 43, you may spot one of eagles flying parallel to you.

Jan. 11: Wolf Park, 7:30 p.m., Howl Night. Bring your rain gear to watch the wolves in nature. The gift shop will also be open (link).
