PRESCOTT – The U.S. Forest Service will close three bald eagle breeding areas to the public Monday, including part of Lynx Lake and two sites along the Verde River.
Lynx Lake, between Prescott and Prescott Valley off of Walker Road, is the most popular site in the Prescott National Forest. A pair of bald eagles has tried to nest in a dead tree next to the lake over the past two years.
