WABASHA — This fall, winter and spring, the National Eagle Center is leading field trips to view bald and golden eagles in and around the Wabasha area. Registration for the 2018-2019 season is now open.

“Our eagle viewing field trips are a great way to view and learn about the bald and golden eagles”, said Ed Hahn, marketing manager at the National Eagle Center. “Winter is peak eagle viewing season and these trips are an easy and accessible way to enjoy nature and the outdoors during the winter months.”

The schedule includes six trips, with half dedicated to bald eagle viewing and half for golden eagle viewing.

The first trip will be a bald eagle trip beginning at 1 p.m. Nov. 3. Two additional bald eagle trips will be on April 13 and April 27.

Golden eagle field trips will be on Nov. 17, Feb. 2 and Feb. 16.

Bald and golden eagle field trips offer attendees an opportunity to view wild eagles in their natural habitat in and around the Upper Mississippi River valley while receiving live interpretation from expert guides. These trips also teach about the region’s natural history, vegetation, and other observed birds and animals.

Cost is $30 for National Eagle Center members and $40 for non-members. Registration includes all-day admission to the National Eagle Center. Trips begin with a brief orientation at 1pm and conclude back at the Center at 5 p.m. for light refreshments.

Coach buses transport attendees to all viewing locations and minimal walking is required. Buses are wheelchair accessible. The National Eagle Center provides binoculars and spotting scopes for guests to share, but guests are strongly encouraged to bring cameras, binoculars and spotting scopes.
