Your Home For 2019/2020 Eagle Field Trip Registration!

Winter is the best time to visit the National Eagle Center and Wabasha, Minnesota offers a unique opportunity to see both of North America’s eagle species in the wild. You can learn more about eagles in the Upper Mississippi River Valley and get great views of bald and golden eagles in the wild on a guided eagle tour into prime eagle habitat with our expert naturalists.

We host our In The Field field trips during the height eagle viewing seasons from November to May, capturing the full range of seasonal viewing. Our trips also incorporate fall tundra swan migration and spring songbird migration! Attendees travel by coach bus with our expert naturalists to bald and golden eagle viewing hot spots in and around the Mississippi River valley. You can view these majestic birds in the wild while learning about their habitat, behavior, and tips for identifying them on your own. Plus, you never know what other wildlife we may see along the way! Minimal walking is required and photography is highly encouraged. Trips begin at 1pm with brief introductions at the Center and return to the Center around 4:30pm for light refreshments.

Join us In The Field for a bald or golden eagle viewing field trip this season!

Please note that children are welcome to attend field trips, but that the experiences are geared toward an adult audience. Trips generally last around 4 1/2 hours and involve a lot of sitting and listening. We ask that parents use discretion when determining whether or not a field trip is age-appropriate for their children and generally do not advise field trips for children younger than 10 years of age. There is no discount when reserving seats for children.

Cost: $30 for members, $40 for non-members.
