Great River Eagle Days will be held on Saturday, January 26th, from 10am-5pm

To celebrate the return of our National bird, the great Bald Eagle, the Standing Bear Council will host the Great River Eagle Days with a variety of activities throughout the day. The event is free and open to the public.

Great River Eagle Days will be held on Saturday, January 26th, from 10am-5pm. The event will be held at America’s Best Value Inn located at 300 Gardner Expressway, Quincy, IL. Special rates will be offered for attendees.

Eagles will be present all day for close up viewing, with the event kicking off with a presentation by Dr. Drew Kaiser of the Raptor Rehabilitation Center, followed by the Blessing of the Eagles Ceremony by Standing Bear Council at 11am. Along with this will be a Grand Entry Ceremony into the circle, at which time Veterans will be honored. Attendees will then be entertained by the Black Fox Singers & Native American dancers, with prizes for the dancers. There will also be information on the Native American Mounds and Chief Keokuk history, as well as Native American vendors and food booths. The Chief Keokuk history will be presented by Tanya Jones, the Chief’s great, great, great granddaughter. The Indian Mounds presentation will be by Steve Tieken.

Participants are encouraged to take advantage of Eagle-watching at Quincy’s Lock & Dam 21 from 9am-4pm. Rangers will be available with complimentary scopes at the site.  Lock & Dam 21 is on Lock & Dam Road, off Gardner Expressway. The best viewing spot is from the adjoining boat ramp.

“We are excited to offer a new event for visitors and Quincyans to experience this magnificent bird from Quincy’s amazing vantage point along the Mississippi,” says Holly Cain, Executive Director, Quincy Area Convention & Visitor’s Bureau.
