Missouri is a great state to view bald eagles in winter. People can learn more about these magnificent birds at the Missouri Department of Conservation's Eagle Days event on Jan. 16 and Jan. 17 at the Springfield Conservation Nature Center.
With bald eagle watching events at Columbia Bottom Conservation Area cancelled due to flood damage, MDC encourages the public to attend the nearby Eagle Days at the Old Chain of Rocks Bridge event Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 16-17 instead.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources. We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature. Read more about our mission.
