Bald Eagle Viewing Field Trip

April 18, 2015

The Upper Mississippi River Valley is home to hundreds of bald eagles. In the summer months, bald eagles nest along the river valley and feed their young from the plentiful fish of the Mississippi River. In the winter months, hundreds more bald eagles migrate to this area to find open water on the Mississippi River near Wabasha, MN. You can learn more about eagles in the Upper Mississippi River Valley and get great views of bald eagles and bald eagle nests along the river on a guided tour with our expert naturalists.

Field trips begin at 1pm with a brief classroom program, followed by a tour via coach bus to prime bald eagle viewing locations. Participants should dress for the weather and bring binoculars, spotting scopes and cameras if desired. Little walking is required – simply step off the bus for a great view! Field trips return to the National Eagle Center for light refreshments and a chance to share photos and stories from the day and conclude by 5pm. Cost is $25 for NEC members, $35 for non-members.
