Eagle Days at Smithville Lake

Posted on Wednesday November 28, 2018
 
Eagle Days will be hosted on January 5-6, 2019 at the Paradise Pointe Golf Course Complex in Little Platte Park.
 
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) and partners will host Eagle Days at Smithville Lake on January 5 and 6. The right combination of weather that's cold, but not too cold, can concentrate waterfowl and eagles at the lake. Regardless of weather, the indoor conservation exhibits and live raptor shows are always popular. All programs are free and all ages welcome.

Conservation displays, crafts for children, and a program with live predatory birds will be available indoors at the Paradise Pointe Golf Course Clubhouse, 18212 Golf Course Drive, Smithville, Mo. Operation Wildlife will showcase live raptors. Other exhibits including wild birds rehabilitated from injuries by the Lakeside Nature Center will be on display.

A wild eagle viewing station will be set up, with spotting scopes and guides, at the Highway W boat ramp. The ramp is near a waterfowl refuge and a prime eagle viewing area. If weather conditions move eagles and waterfowl to other locales, information on a change in viewing station location will be available at the event.

Eagle Days show times on Saturday are 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, and 2:00.  Sunday show times are 11:00, 12:30, and 2:00. For more information about Eagle Days and live bird show times, call the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at 816-532-0174.

Eagle Days at Smithville Lake is a partnership between MDC, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Clay County Parks and Recreation Department, and other public and private conservation partners.
