Our popular Eagle Sunday events will look a little different this year but offer several opportunities for you and your loved ones to learn about these amazing birds and enjoy time spent outdoors. Visitors can pre-order tickets for small group Eagle Meet & Greets, guided Swan & Eagle Walks, cozy up by the campfire with some s'mores, or do all three. Find out from the descriptions below.

Eagle Meet & Greet 

Meet Liberty, the live American Bald Eagle, up close and presented by World Bird Sanctuary! Visitors will learn all about amazing eagle adaptations, their conservation history, and fun facts. Question and answer opportunities will follow and visitors will leave with a renewed passion for our nation's symbol. Sessions: 10a, 11a, 12p, 1p, 2p

After your eagle meet and greet session, take time to roast mallows and enjoy a fireside s'more. Then a leisurely walk along our trails to view overwintering eagles, trumpeter swans, and other waterfowl that call the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary their winter home! Our trails will also feature self-guided learning stations, a trail-side storybook walk, and more!
