Attendees will learn about this incredible wildlife opportunity to view and photograph the annual winter gathering of Bald Eagles along the Mississippi River north and south of LeClaire. At the conclusion of the presentation, attendees may join Burt at Lock & Dam 14 to view and photograph the Eagles of LeClaire.
