Birds, Brunch, and Beverages

February 4 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm



Please join us Saturday, February 2nd, 2023 for a day with the staff of Prairie Hills RCD and the members of the Western Prairie Audubon Society of Illinois as we take a bus tour of the Mississippi river to bird watch, eat brunch, and have some beverages.

February is a great time for eagle watching as they winter around the lock and dams.

In partnership with the Western Prairie Society Audubon of Illinois, their experienced birders will be talking with us on the bus and help identify and share valuable information about bald eagles and other bird species we will see. Grab your binoculars, spotting scopes, water bottles, dress accordingly, and join us to see these magnificent birds.

Tickets are $65, include lunch and are tax deductible.
