THE OVERLOOK IS NOW OPEN!!!
The eagle watching overlook in Prairie du Sac is revamped and open! This spacious overlook still offers viewing of the riverway and eagles perched on Eagle Island but accommodates more people. The overlook also has newly revised information panels. As part of a riverway revitalization project, the Village of Prairie du Sac has been instrumental in providing for this extensive remodeling of the eagle viewing area. We are most appreciative of their efforts. Yet to come, we are still working on obtaining new spotting scopes, including a handicapped accessible scope but, due to COVID, obtaining new spotting scopes has not yet been possible. Nevertheless, our old spotting scope has been re-installed and is ready to delight many bird watchers. Come check it out this winter!
In January and February, FBEC volunteers also staff the Overlook on Saturday and Sunday mornings. Volunteers can answer questions and show visitors where else they can view eagles.
