Clarksville, Eagle Days - Clarksville, Missouri is one of the notable winter Bald Eagle watching spots in the Middle Mississippi River Valley due to its proximity to Locks and Dam #26, which keeps the water free of ice enabling the eagles to find fish during the cold weather.

Naturalists from the Missouri Department of Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the WBS set up spotting scopes, exhibits, children¿s activities, and live eagle shows to entertain and educate the public.
