|Squaw Creek Eagle Days trip offered on Dec. 1|
Visit the yearly celebration of "Eagle Days" at the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge through a birdwatching trip being offered by the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
Always a participant favorite, this trip affords a close-up view of our national bird. The trip will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1, and will include a special presentation including a close-up look at a mature Bald Eagle and tour of the refuge and a chance to look through spotting scopes to view this amazing bird. It is not unusual to observe 150 to 200 bald eagles on the refuge and surrounding area. Other wildlife such as ducks, geese, and deer have also been observed in past years.
