MONROE, Mich. (AP) — DTE Energy is opening up its Monroe Power Plant to visitors who can check out the bald eagles that spend their winters there.

The utility maintains more than 800 acres at its property on the Lake Erie shore dedicated to preserving wildlife habitat.

Once a year, DTE, in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, opens the plant gates to visitors to tour the site.

This year's tour takes place on Saturday. A lottery is held to select the attendees.

Visitors can see the eagles in their natural habitat. Other wildlife spotted during last year's tour included whitetail deer, red-tailed hawks and seagulls.

DTE Energy staff and a naturalist with the University of Michigan are to give the tours and answer questions.
