ENF's 2013 Bald Eagle Bus Tours

Apple River, IL) The Eagle Nature Foundation (ENF) has just announced its plans to once again offer 4-hour Bald Eagle Bus Tours next January and February. ENF has offered these tours for over 35 years. These 4–hour tours will leave at 8:00 am sharp on the mornings of Jan. 12, Feb. 9 and 23, 2013 from the parking lot of the Stoney Creek Inn on Hwy. 20 on the west side of Galena and return shortly after noon. All of these tours will be guided by ENF Executive Director, Terrence Ingram. He has been leading these tours for over 47 years. During each tour Mr. Ingram will share his knowledge and love of the bald eagle which he has gained from working with them for over 50 years. Each tour will visit five different historical wintering communities of the bald eagle. People will be able to see bald eagles flying, roosting, feeding and if lucky courting. During some tours people may actually see bald eagles migrating through the area. Participants will be treated to four hours of living with the bald eagle and not just looking at them. Anyone going on a tour should bring binoculars, telescopes and cameras and be dressed for the winter weather whatever it may be on that day.

ENF is keeping the cost for the tour at the same rate as last year, so more people will be able to participate. The cost for a 4-hour tour is $65 per seat for adults and $45 per seat for children, 17 and under. Any person registering for a tour before Jan. 1, 2013 will receive an early bird discount of $5 per person off the above prices. A copy of a tour brochure may be obtained by writing to the office: ENF, 300 East Hickory Street, Apple River, IL 61001 or calling 815-594-2306.
