In January and February FBEC volunteers guide eagle watching bus tours on Saturday* mornings. Participants should meet at the Cedarberry Inn, 855 Phillips Blvd. (Hwy 12) for a 10:00 a.m. departure time. The tour is one hour long and visits the dam, VFW Park and Prairie du Sac overlook, sites where bald eagles are regularly seen.



The cost is $5 per person (children 5 and younger are free). To reserve a spot, call the Sauk Prarie Area Chamber of Commerce at 1-800-68EAGLE. (These are very popular - Reservations are strongly encouraged.)
