Festival of Eagles in Stella, Missouri (2018)

The Neosho Area Chamber of Commerce invites everyone out for a “wonderful opportunity to view bald eagles in the wild.”

The Festival of Eagles at the Veteran’s Memorial Park in Stella, Missouri is scheduled for Saturday, January 26th, 2019 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
“The bald eagle represents freedom, power and courage to many of us. Eagle viewing is always a draw and once again we will be highlighting our national symbol at a special event for all ages.

The Festival of Eagles is sponsored by the Chert Glades Missouri Master Naturalists, the community of Stella, MO and the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The Missouri Master Naturalists will be staffing information and educational tables, and fun games for the kids. The Stella Eagle Day is our signature event. We will also be staffing spotting scopes for eagle viewing and be on-hand to answer raptor and habitat questions.

There are already several hundred bald eagles in the area. Our day is planned in the middle of their “winter stay,” so families, photographers and naturalists may continue to view eagles for weeks to come. Please join us at the Festival of Eagles. Look for our tent at Veteran’s Park in Stella.”

Organizers say dress for the weather and bring binoculars and your camera if you have them.

Families can also check out educational activities, displays and the Stella Community Quilt Show. There will also be refreshments, T-shirts and warming stations.
