Eagle watching along the Meeting of the Great Rivers National Scenic Byway has become a favorite winter activity as hundreds of American Bald Eagles reclaim their nests near Alton, Illinois. We begin Tuesday at National Great Rivers Museum and Melvin Price Lock & Dam. After lunch, we visit the Audubon Center at Riverlands for the latest counts on all the migrating birds in the region. Our guide will help us glimpse the area’s vacationing birds at the Riverlands Migratory Bird Sanctuary, followed by a visit to the TreeHouse Wildlife Center. That evening, we check into the Pere Marquette Lodge in Grafton, Illinois for dinner and a night of relaxation. Wednesday starts with breakfast at the lodge before we meet our guide at the Pere Marquette Visitor Center. We will round out the day with a ride on the Brussels Ferry to Calhoun County for lunch and visits to many eagle watching hot spots. We hope you can join us for this wonderful winter adventure!
