Eagle watching will continue to draw thousands of people to the Riverbend over the next couple of months to see what is normally a huge number of the majestic birds nesting in our area. A series of meet and greets continue around the area over the next several months, and there is a new event this weekend.


Tomorrow, the new Audubon Center at Riverlands will host the Alton Eagle Festival from 10am-2pm, according to the Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau's Suzanne Halbrook.

The CVB has recently published a new eagle watching guide, touting the Riverbend's great location for eagle watching, with the confluence of the Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois Rivers.
