Eagle viewing at Montauk State Park in February

Jefferson City, Mo. - Guests can watch as the eagles glide across the skies above the Montauk valley on Feb. 6 and Feb. 20 at Montauk State Park. The events are sponsored by Missouri State Parks and will be held at 9 a.m. on both days. Participants should meet at the CCC Stone Picnic Shelter for the free, public programs.

The park naturalist will lead a group to view the eagles, including an active eagle’s nest in the park. A spotting scope and binoculars will be available, but guests are encouraged to bring their own binoculars and cameras.
