Muscatine Bald Eagle Watch and Live Raptor Programs

The American bald eagle was adopted as the national bird symbol of the United States of America in 1782. The bald eagle was chosen for its majestic beauty, great strength, long life, and because it’s native to North America. Now is your chance to witness the American bald eagle in its natural habitat.

As part of the Eagles & Ivories Ragtime Weekend, the Muscatine Bald Eagle Watch takes place this Saturday Jan 26 at Pearl City Station (100 Harbor Dr. Muscatine), along the Muscatine Riverfront.

Outdoor viewings of bald eagles will take place from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. along the Mighty Mississippi, as well as live raptor programs at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. at the Pearl City Station.

Peruse the booths hosted by conservation groups and agencies, partake in crafts for kids, sip on coffee and hot chocolate and enjoy a memorable day with the family!
