- Introduction: Once the idea that we would offer a program of bald eagle viewing seemed absurd in the face of the species’ pending extinction.
Once the idea that we would offer a program of bald eagle viewing seemed absurd in the face of the species’ pending extinction this event is a testament that conservation can and does work. Come view what is possible when we choose to care for the wilds. The open waters below the dam at the Saylorville Reservoir create feeding opportunities that congregate central Iowa’s winter eagles and almost guarantee you a chance to view an eagle. This program is a joint effort between DCCB, Polk County Conservation and the Corps of Engineers. It provides the public with the thrill of viewing eagles in the Des Moines River valley and educational programming to increase your understanding of these majestic birds. Specific viewing locations and programming schedules can be obtained at the Saylorville Visitors’ Center on the day of the event.
