What Is Happening?

MDC Twin Pines Conservation Education Center is hosting Eagle Days. While it was scheduled in January, inclement weather caused the cancellation.

Twin Pines is partnering with Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield to bring the eagles. Guests can ask questions and learn fun eagle facts. Attendees can see just how majestic a bald and golden eagle are up close!

Why The Class?

The class takes place on February 15 at 6 p.m. The class lasts one hour.

Who Can Attend?

All ages can attend this class. There is no fee, but registration is required. One can register here.

Where Is This?

This class is held at the Missouri Department of Conservation’s  (MDC) Twin Pines Conservation Education Center. It’s address is 20086 Hwy 60 in Winona. From Alton, take Highway 19 north to US 60 and head east.

Eagle Knowledge

Missouri is among the leading lower 48 states for bald eagle viewing because of its wide rivers, many lakes, and abundant wetlands. Each fall, thousands of our national birds migrate south from their nesting range in Canada and the Great Lakes states to hunt in Missouri. These eagles take up residence wherever they find open water and plentiful food. It is estimated that more than 2,000 bald eagles are typically reported in Missouri during winter.
