Golden Eagle field trip Dec. 8 (12/02/2012)
Golden eagles are back in the blufflands. The National Eagle Center is tracking several golden eagles as part of the Golden Eagle Project to learn more about the migration patterns and habitat use of golden eagles that winter in this area. One of the golden eagles has just returned to this area after spending the summer thousands of miles away in Nunavut, Canada. While golden eagles are not known to nest in Minnesota and Wisconsin, the Golden Eagle Project is documenting a regular winter population of golden eagles in the blufflands.

On Saturday, December 8th, 1pm-5pm, NEC Education Director and Golden Eagle Project Co-coordinator Scott Mehus will be leading a Golden Eagle Field Trip. Participants will learn more about golden eagles in the blufflands and have the opportunity to observe these elusive raptors in the wild. The field trip begins at 1pm at the National Eagle Center and departs via coach bus after a brief classroom session. Participants are encouraged to dress for the weather and bring their own binoculars or camera. Spotting scopes and a few extra pairs of binoculars will be available. The field trip will conclude at the National Eagle Center with warm refreshments and a chance for further discussion. The cost is $35, or $25 for NEC members, and includes transportation and admission to the National Eagle Center.

The National Eagle Center in Wabasha, MN is home to five rescued eagles and fosters environmental stewardship through education about eagles and the Upper Mississippi River watershed.
