Discover Lincoln... and eagles!

January 10, 2022

Winter is the perfect time to explore a Looking for Lincoln area. The Alton/Rivers & Routes area is a great place for outdoor adventures, with the added bonus of spying our national symbol, the bald eagle.

While exploring area Lincoln sites, consider a side trip to Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette State Park. All programs will begin at the park's visitor center at 8:30 a.m. There is a short video presentation followed by an observational drive to view the wintering bald eagles. Dress warmly and have a full tank of gas, binoculars, water proof boots, and bring snacks/coffee. For more information or reservations, call (618) 786-3323 ext 1 for reservations, or download an Eagle Days brochure for a full list of available dates at
