Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette State Park | Kids Out and About St. Louis

Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette State Park

Have you ever seen our national bird, the bald eagle? Soaring on a 6 to 7.5 foot wing span, these birds are magnificent! It is not necessary to travel all the way to Canada to see these fabulous creatures. Pere Marquette State Park is fortunate to play host to these seasonal visitors. Eagles may be spotted in the tree tops along the Illinois River in the months of December, January, February and March.

Pere Marquette State Park will be presenting informative programs about bald eagles this winter.  Visitors will learn to distinguish between immature and mature bald eagles, what eagles eat, why they spend winter months in the area, and much more.  All programs will begin at the park’s visitor center at 8:30 A.M.  (Reservations Required.)  There will be a  video presentation and program followed by an observational drive to view the wintering bald eagles.  Please be sure to dress warmly, have a full tank of gas and bring binoculars!
