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 #24, which keeps the water free of ice enabling the eagles to find fish during the cold weather. Every year Clarksville holds its annual Eagle Days on the last weekend of January. 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. Local community organizations and restaurants provide plenty of good food and the shops in town are open for visitors to investigate.

Spotting scopes are set up at River Front City Park and naturalists from the Missouri Department of Conservation are on hand to assists visitors.
Live eagle programs are presented every hour by the World Bird Sanctuary of St. Louis at the Apple Shed at the southern end of town. These programs cover both the Bald and Golden eagles, allow the audience to ask questions, and provide up close photo opportunities.

Also at the Apple Shed are exhibits, displays, and children’s activities provided by the Missouri Department of Conservation, a video - "Where Eagles Soar" - that runs every half hour, and conservation gifts for sale.
