  • If you’ve never seen a bald eagle in the wild, then here is your chance. Missouri is the winter home to thousands of bald eagles migrating from northern states. Open waterways for fishing and a taste for migrating waterfowl make Missouri a winter haven for eagles. Special activities, bus tours, and spotting scopes will be set up for your eagle viewing pleasure.
