Special Event
Pelican Days Festival
West Alton, Missouri

October, 2019


Location: Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary,  US-67, West Alton, MO

Date: Saturday, October 13, 2018

Times: 10 am - 2 pm

Description: One of the most anticipated events for birders in the Middle Mississippi Valley is the annual migration of the American White Pelican. During their fall migration south from nesting areas in freshwater lakes in the northern United States and southern Canada the pelicans arrive in the Meeting of the Great Rivers Scenic Byway region beginning in late September with the last leaving in early November.

Join the staff at the Audubon Center at Riverlands for a celebration of all things Pelican! The American White Pelican is one of our largest and most charismatic birds we see in the sanctuary. Their large wingspans and graceful flight paired with their strange beaks make them a very striking bird! Pelican Days will be a day of fun family-friendly activities all about Pelicans!
