Wings Over Alma, Nature & Art Center  

Wings Over Alma, Inc. is a non-profit community organization seeking to enhance and promote awareness of the Upper Mississippi River environment and raise the level of regional arts and crafts appreciation.   


The Center offers an outdoor viewing deck overlooking the Mississippi River, equipped with spotting scopes and binoculars to view a variety of wildlife year-round. The Mississippi Flyway brings hundreds of migrating birds past the Center. During the winter months, dozens of eagles can be viewed from the deck feeding in the open water below Lock and Dam #4. Wings Over Alma overlooks the Upper Mississippi River Fish & Wildlife Refuge. Inside the Center, historical societies and museums provide changing vignettes. Nature displays and educational programs are offered throughout the year. And local area artists display their work in rotating exhibits. Exhibit work is often available for purchase along with fine art reproductionsThe center also offers a wide variety of gift items including books, coffee mugs, cutting boards, puzzles, puppets, scarves, notecards, postcards and more. End your visit by browsing the gift shop or enjoying a comfortable seat with a river view!
