Saturday January 19, 2019
1 pm - 4 pm
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. The scouts will get close enough to get a
picture with the eagle! Then they will head outside (dress for the
weather!) to view wild eagles atop the
Melvin Price Locks and
Dam through viewing scopes. 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.
The cost for this event is $5/ scout and
$5/sibling wishing to participate in the activities.
Parents/chaperones are free. Registration is required for this
event. Please include all scouts and siblings in your reservation to
ensure they don't miss out on this amazing experience.
