You can view these majestic birds in the wild while learning about their habitat, behavior, and tips for identifying them on your own.

Field Trip Prices and Details
Field trips are a traveling classroom experience and take place on a coach bus. They begin at 1:00pm at a pre-determined meeting location in Wabasha and conclude between 4:30 – 5:00pm. Attendees will be sent meeting instructions via email prior to the day. Participants should dress for the weather and bring their own binoculars, spotting scopes, and cameras if desired. Little walking is required. There are no age restrictions, but we do not recommend these experiences for young children who may not handle sitting on a bus for long periods very well. However, we leave this up to parental discretion.
Registrants who are unable to attend a field trip can receive a full refund. Cancellations must be made by 5pm Wednesday (3 days) prior to the scheduled field trip to be eligible for a full refund.
The National Eagle Center reserves the right to cancel a field trip for any reason. In cases where a field trip is canceled, all registrants will receive a full refund.
