KANSAS CITY, Mo. — To protect an active bald eagle nest, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has temporarily closed the upper end of the Mouse Creek arm of Longview Lake.

The area will be closed through the end of July.  The Corps has determined protection of the nest is necessary as required by the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act.  Guidance from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service directs that no activity be allowed within close proximity to the nest to prevent the disruption of nesting activities.
