Eagle Days at Chain of Rocks Bridge

Virtual for 2022

The Chain of Rocks Bridge, which connects St. Louis with Madison County, Illinois, is one of the best areas to view eagles in the wintertime.  As the cold weather settles in up North, eagles follow the rivers south and settle around the St. Louis area. They are drawn to food, and to their prior nesting spots, which is why the eagles return year after year.

The Missouri Department of Conservation, the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and Great Rivers Greenway are once again hosting an Eagle Days Celebration, but this year it will be held virtually. The event will take place from 9am-3pm on Saturday, January 15. Eagle Days programming is also made possible with support from the World Bird Sanctuary and offers the chance for visitors to discover a close connection with the bald eagle. Eagle Days is additionally supported by Land Learning Foundation.
