CROWN POINT | Sixteen students from the St. Mary Catholic Community School’s Environmental Club traveled to Starved Rock State Park in Illinois last month to view the bald eagles living there.

Club members found the bald eagle viewing during the winter to be an exhilarating and memorable experience. They had learned that wintering eagles begin arriving at the park in December, concentrations peak in January and February, and most head back to their nests by mid-March.

The club members and sponsors were honored to be joined by geology professor Dr. Robert Votaw, who hiked with the group and helped the students notice many of the natural beauties in the park, including the famous frozen waterfall in Wildcat Canyon.
