Join us to celebrate more land protection at this state natural area.

Wednesday, May 29, 2019 | 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.

Ferry Bluff Eagle Council and Groundswell Conservancy invite you to celebrate the addition of 31 acres at Ferry Bluff State Natural Area.

Ferry Bluff Celebration 2019

Thanks to many generous donors and a grant from the State of Wisconsin Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, this additional land was purchased last fall. Expanding Ferry Bluff will keep development away from a current eagle roost, protect potential roost areas, and restore native ecosystems for myriad other species that inhabit this area.

Wednesday, May 29, 2019, from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m.
E 10014 Huerth Road, Prairie Du Sac
Look for a parking attendant and signs.

There will be a short program with refreshments. Afterward, we hope you will join us on a hike up Ferry Bluff for an eagle-eye view of the Wisconsin River valley. This celebration
is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is encouraged.

Please register online by Friday, May 24th at www.groundswellwisconsin.org/ferrybluffcelebration or call Groundswell at (608) 258-9797 or [email protected].

Eagle Research

Bald Eagle soaringFrom population data to roost counts, part of our mission is collecting data on eagles.


People on foot scare eagles. Please remain in your car and use it as a blind.  Do not walk along the river, particularly at the hydropower dam, since that is the eagles’ most active feeding area. Eagles, particularly immature ones, need to conserve their energy in order to survive the cold days of Wisconsin winters.

Thank you for your consideration of our nation’s symbol, the bald eagle.
