Eagle Days Back at Squaw Creek

From Missouri Conservation Dept.

Squaw Creek welcomes back the annual Eagle Days this weekend.

The National Wildlife Refuge will hold the 34th annual event this Saturday and Sunday.

The program features live captive eagles and wildlife exhibits. It’s also a great time to check out the migrating waterfowl and bald eagles on the refuge’s wetlands.

On Saturday and Sunday, Eagle Days activities will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., including the driving tour of the refuge wetlands.

Spotting scopes will be set up at some locations to help visitors spot eagles and wildlife.

Programs with live, captive eagles start Saturday each hour 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The Missouri Conservation Department partners with the US Fish and Wildlife service for the event.

Events on Friday are reserved for school groups. Squaw Creek is north of St. Joseph off Interstate 29 exit 72.
