ID: Active eagle nest dims campsites

PRIEST LAKE, Idaho — The U.S. Forest Service is temporarily closing two campsites on Kalispell Island due to the discovery of an active bald eagle nest.

The closure affects campsites Nos. 30 and 34 in the island’s Three Pines campground. The nest was discovered during a recent bald eagle survey and it’s the first year an active nest has been confirmed since 2014, according to the Idaho Panhandle National Forests.

As required by the IPNF’s Land Management Plan and the National Bald Eagle Management Guidelines, the IPNF is seasonally restricting camping activities near the nest. During the breeding season, bald eagles are sensitive to a variety of human activities.
