Clinton Bald Eagle Day
7 January 2017 @ 9:00 am - 2:00 pm
The bald eagle visits the Upper Mississippi River and National Wildlife & Fish Refuge lands each year from late fall through early spring. As many as 2,500 bald eagles winter along the Upper Mississippi River from St. Paul, MN to St. Louis, MO. This program is dedicated to the understanding, appreciation, and protection of our national symbol.
SOAR will be part of the 33rd Annual Bald Eagle Watch. We are scheduled at 9:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.
In addition to SOAR, there will be other presenters, too. The Exhibit Hall at Clinton Community College will feature wildlife exhibits, food, drinks and door prizes. Naturalists and volunteers will be on hand with spotting scopes and binoculars to share their enthusiasm and knowledge of these and other grand birds of prey.
