Description: Get your pack together and head to the National Great Rivers Museum to get your eagle on! Scouts will meet a LIVE American Bald Eagle and learn about their amazing comeback story.

An active eagle's nest is in full view! Scouts will discover all the adaptations that make the American Bald Eagle a terrific hunter and able to survive in the wild. After all the eagle fun, scouts will gather around campfires for hot cocoa.
