Now that winter’s colder temperatures have arrived, eagles will be gathering near the open waters at the Four Rivers Environmental Education Center, in Channahon. Furnishing a great opportunity to view these magnificent birds and informing more about them and others, the Forest Preserve District of Will County will present Eagle Watch 2023 at the site from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., January 14.

Milton, Wisconsin-based Hoo’s Woods Raptor Center will present live bird sessions with an adult bald eagle, snowy owl and screech owls. Eagle Watch includes guided hikes, Talon Talks, family activities and more.

Ongoing events include campfire stories, family crafts, Eagle Eye scavenger hunts and food truck fare from Lil’ Deb’s Mobile Eats.
