Each year, hundreds of people gather along the rivers in Missouri to view bald eagles in flight. On March 17, 2013, you and your kids can see these beautiful birds up close and learn more about their lifestyle and habits.
World Eagle Day at the World Bird Sanctuary in Valley Park is a fun-filled, educational day for families. From 10:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m., there will be free live eagle shows, crafts for kids and tours of the wildlife hospital. The sanctuary’s naturalists will be on hand to teach fun facts about eagles and other birds of prey while members of the Comanche Nation will teach about how eagles affect Comanche culture. Be sure to bring your camera because you can even get your picture taken with a bald eagle!
World Eagle Day is a great way for homeschoolers to get science credit and all kids to have fun while learning about one of the many wonderful creatures who share our earth. The World Bird Sanctuary is located at 125 Bald Eagle Ridge Road. This is a free event.
