The First Hannibal Eagle Day will be noon to 4 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Admiral Coontz Recreation Center and the Rotary Pavilion at the Hannibal riverfront.
The event is sponsored by the Mississippi Hills Master Naturalists and Hannibal Parks & Recreation.
Activities at the armory will include eagle/nature related crafts and games for children. Master Naturalists will provide educational information for all visitors on how eagles became endangered and their recovery. A short video on recovery of the Bald Eagle will also be available for viewing.
Spotting scopes will be set up on the riverfront at the Rotary Pavilion for the public to observe the live action of the eagles as they dive for food and roost in trees located across the river. Members will be available to assist the public with the viewing scopes. Be sure to dress warmly for outdoor viewing on the river.
