Come chat with staff of The Conservation Foundation and enjoy prime eagle watching at Eagle Watch Weekend 2019, Saturday January 26th and Sunday January 27th, 2019. Each winter bald eagles gather along the Illinois River, and Starved Rock State Park, one of the true natural jewels of Illinois, is a stunning place to view them. Enjoy a fascinating raptor show, displays from natural resources vendors and organizations (including The Conservation Foundation), hikes, trolley tours, interpretive programs and much more throughout Starved Rock State Park and neighboring tourist destinations.
The birding hike schedule for Saturday morning has been cancelled due to low forecasted temperatures. We are offering another hike at Dayton Bluffs on March 2nd but registration is limited - click here for more information.
The Conservation Foundation will be set up in the Starved Rock Lodge all day Saturday and Sunday, so stop on by and say hello!
Eagle Watch Weekend is presented by the Illinois Audubon Society.
