Get out your coats, hats and gloves for one of the most popular winter events at the Lake of the Ozarks. Ameren Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks Eagle Days will return for its 19th year at the Lake on Saturday, January 8, 2022. The first live eagle program held in 1999 attracted 651 participants. In 2019, over 3,700 people attended to make it one of the most successful Eagle Days in years past.
A collective partnership with the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, Lake of the Ozarks Convention and Visitor Bureau, Osage National Golf Resort, FaceLift Design+Print, Regalia Hotel & Conference Center and Missouri Master Naturalist – Lake of the Ozarks Chapter, announces Ameren Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks Eagle Days will return to Lake Ozark in January 2022. Mark your calendars now for January 8, 2022 for this entertaining and educational event. In addition, over 60 area businesses and organizations come together to make this event possible and remain free to attend. Please patronize them when possible!
Safety protocols will be in place for everyone's safety and will be more specifically detailed closer to the event date based on the current situation at that time. Updates will be made to the website and Facebook page as they become available.
Due to Covid 19 there will be some changes to the event in 2021. One change we already know is that viewing scopes will not be available at Wilmore Lodge or the Bagnell Dam River Access. Naturalists will be on hand to point you in the right direction of where eagles may be, but everyone is encouraged to BRING YOUR OWN BINOCULARS!!!
