Alton, IL & St. Louis Area

Attractions, Activities, Events & Happenings

Bye, Bye, Birdies!

In just a matter of weeks, Alton’s beloved bald eagles will be continuing their migration and leaving the area for the season.

However, there are still several of eagle-watching events and activities to get a last glimpse before they go.

Sunday, February 23: Live Bald Eagles at Treehouse Wildlife Center in Dow
Wednesday, February 26: Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette Park in Grafton
Friday, March 7: Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette Park in Grafton

Or, you can simply explore eagle hot spots (this week’s include Pere Marquette State Park in Grafton, Two Rivers National Wildlife Refuge in Brussells, and the Great River Road) and find your own adventure!

Either way, don’t miss the eagles! They’ll be gone before you know it!
