PLAINFIELD, Ind. – Duke Energy Indiana’s 2017 Eagle Viewing Day, originally scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 28, at the Cayuga Generation Station, has been cancelled. The station underwent an emergency 100-day outage this fall, and so workers were unable to implement the necessary public safety plans for the event.
Cayuga Generating Station is located about 35 miles north of Terre Haute.
“We’re always reluctant to cancel such a popular program as Eagle Viewing Day,” said John Hayes, Duke Energy vice president for Midwest generation. “However, our plant personnel were heavily involved in this critical generator project, which left no time for the work needed to prepare for Eagle Viewing Day.”
However, the Birds of Prey program, sponsored by Duke Energy, will still be conducted in late January at a number of area elementary and middle schools in Hendricks, Putnam, Sullivan, Vermillion and Parke counties. Once again, the American Eagle Foundation will present these programs to help children gain a greater appreciation for the role these birds play in sustaining our environment.
