The Audubon Center at Riverlands Environmental Demonstration Area & Downtown Alton will team up to host the first Alton Eagle Festival on Saturday, January 7. The public is invited to meet and greet with knowledgeable people from the area's eagle watching hot spots to see what is in store for the rest of the season.
Alton Regional Convention and Visitor's Bureau's Suzanne Halbrook says the day starts at the new Audubon Center at Riverlands from 10am-2pm.
Activities in Downtown Alton will include ice sculpting on the streets and a wildlife art walk to view eagle and wildlife photography displayed by artists from Alton and beyond. For more information call 465-6676, or visit the CVB’s website
