Bald Eagle Day
Utah's Division of Wildlife Resources hosts an annual, state-wide Bald Eagle Day usually in February. Admission is free.

Bald Eagle

The annual Bald Eagle Day gives interested people a chance to view bald eagles and learn about them at specified sites throughout Utah. These sites are staffed by experts and professionals from the Division of Wildlife Resources, biologists and volunteers who will be available to help viewers spot eagles and to answer any questions.

Spotting scopes will be set up at each viewing site for public use. Displays will also be set up and pamphlets and other materials about Bald Eagles will be available.

Although the possibility of viewing the eagles will continue throughout the day, the best times to see them are late morning to early afternoon. This is when the visibility is best, and the temps are the warmest, and the birds will be active.

It is advised for participants to dress warmly and, be prepared for cold.

Children and families are welcome and encouraged to participate. Since Bald Eagle Day began in 1990, it has grown into one of Utah's most well-attended and enjoyed wildlife-viewing events.
