Eagle Watch Program at the Prairie Heritage Center

March 2 @ 9:30am - 4:00pm

Watching a majestic bald eagle soar overhead is a breathtaking sight.  During our annual survey earlier in January, we spotted a record number of eagles in the valley.  At the beginning of March, the resident bald eagles are mixing with other eagles traveling through the area. In addition, many other raptors are also on the move in the Little Sioux River Valley.

All of this activity comes just in time for the annual Bald Eagle Watch on Saturday, March 2nd at the Prairie Heritage Center.  This event is a come-and-go opportunity to observe eagles throughout the day.  The O’Brien County Naturalist and other volunteers will be on hand to help you spot and identify eagles.

At 2:00 p.m., Iowa author/photographer, Ty Smedes, will be presenting information about raptors.  Smedes photography and knowledge of birds makes this a presentation you won’t want to miss.

There will be also be hands on learning activities for people of all ages available throughout the day.

Bring the family for an enjoyable day of viewing eagles and learning more about them.  The Prairie Heritage Center is located one mile off of Hwy 10 at 4931 Yellow Ave.  Stop by throughout the day from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
