Eagle near Clark Bridge in West AltonCub Scouts from around the area will gather at the National Great Rivers Museum this Saturday, January 18.  From 9am until noon, scouts will explore the behavior and habits of Bald Eagles, discover the adaptations that help them survive in the wild, and experience a bird’s eye view of the eagles from atop Melvin Price Locks and Dam through high powered spotting scopes. 

Park Ranger Erin Hilligoss-Volkmann says it will be a day that combines learning with fun.
