Registration opened Tuesday for Eagles & Agriculture, scheduled for Jan. 27-30, according to the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce.

With buses back for this year, the chamber said there will be more room on tours of the Valley’s ranches.

“The same great tours you have come to expect are on tap again, including the receptions with up close and personal interaction with the birds of prey, the owl prowl in the historic barns, and of course the ranch tours with the eagles,” according to the chamber. “New this is year the highway tour has been moved to Sunday morning for better bird sightings and photography opportunities.”
