Naturalists and/or volunteers will be at these viewing sites to assist you in spotting and observing Eagles along with answering your Eagle questions.

4:00 – 5:00 PM – Sunset Eagle Viewing*
Sunset is at 4:57 PM and this is another great time to catch some of the best eagle activity. Meet at 1000 Islands (Fishing Pier or Nelson Overlook) or at Alhstrom-Munksjo’s Technology Support Center on Thilmany Rd (North side of river). Naturalists and/or volunteers will be at these viewing sites to assist you in spotting and observing Eagles along with answering your Eagle questions.
*Eagles can be seen any time of the day, but at sunrise & sunset they are more active as they are looking for food. Viewing is dependent on the weather. All viewing is outside; dress appropriately & bring binoculars or a spotting scope.

Eagle Days Activities at the Kaukauna Public Library
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM A Storybook Walk and Adventure
Walk along the river to enjoy some eagle sightings and read the book Ella, Eddie and Egg by Stephanie Feuerstein. Reading stations will be set up for a self-guided walk to read a page or two at each station. Visit each station to read the entire book.
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM Wildlife Rehab Detection and Live Animal Presentation
Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a wildlife rehab detective? Help solve some of the rehab cases Wildlife of Wisconsin (W.O.W.) has dealt with, as well as learn how you can protect the animals yourself. W.O.W. will also have a few of their live rehab birds for you to see. Compare your wingspan to that of an Eagle’s, and the children can take home a simple DIY Eagle related craft.
