The Saturday, Jan. 12 planned bald eagle counts in the San Bernardino National Forest, such as Lake Hemet, have been canceled. The government shutdown prevents the U.S. Forest Service from conducting these counts.

The Forest Service will be "unavailable to host the count at U.S. Forest Service locations in Big Bear, Lake Arrowhead and Lake Hemet."

According to the Forest Service Washington media center, the counts at Silverwood Lake and Lake Perris, which are run by California State Parks, will still take place.
