Watching a bald eagle soar overhead is a breathtaking sight. Bald Eagles have very been active in the area in the past few weeks! Other raptors have also been moving around in the Little Sioux River Valley. The large Rough-legged Hawks are especially impressive as they hover over the prairie while hunting.

All of this raptor activity comes just in time for the annual Bald Eagle Watch on Saturday, March 5 at the Prairie Heritage Center. This event is a come-and-go opportunity to observe eagles throughout the day. The O’Brien County Naturalist will be on hand to help you spot and identify eagles.

There will be learning activities for people of all ages. Bring the family for an enjoyable day of viewing eagles and learning more about them. The Prairie Heritage Center is located just one mile off of Hwy 10 at 4931 Yellow Ave. Stop by throughout the day from 9:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

Contact the Prairie Heritage Center at 712-295-7200 for more information about this great opportunity to view our national symbol in the wild and in the center!
