Eagle Days

Missouri's winter eagle watching is spectacular. If you can’t make it to one of our many Eagle Days events (check out the calendar below), browse our best-places list for locations to enjoy eagle-viewing on your own. From late December through early February, watch for eagles perched in large trees along the water’s edge. Get out early in the morning to see the eagles flying and fishing.

O say can you see, Missouri’s most majestic flyer, the bald eagle? Join us to celebrate our nation’s birth and our most iconic national symbol with an Evening at the Nature Center. This will also be a time to introduce you to our newest exhibit, our eagles nest play area. The nature center will be open extra late as we learn about eagles, wetlands, and our Mississippi River ecosystem. While we will not have live eagles, games, discovery tables, crafts and play areas will help us appreciate our once nearly extinct bird. So fly on by and check out the fun!
