Scott County in Iowa is home to the Pleasant Valley Township. It covers an area of about 28 square miles. It is located right on the shore of the Mississippi River and between the cities of Davenport and Le Claire.
Lock and Dam 14 is located in Pleasant Valley. Many people travel to the area to watch and photograph the American Bald Eagles around the beginning of the year. Every year, when the Great Lake Region is covered with snow and rivers freeze, the eagles migrate to the south in search of food. This migration begins around mid-December. Lock and Dam 14 offers a large public parking lot, restrooms and a long board walk to set up cameras. It provides an amazing view of the eagles perched in the trees around the area and catching fish under the dams. The river offers a great fishing location to the birds. There is also a nature trail that goes to Smith Island along the river.
Pleasant Valley Township is also well known for its school district, including the Pleasant Valley High School. It is a K-12 public school system with about 4,200 students. The district includes the eastern portion of Bettendorf, Riverdale, Panorama Park and LeClaire. The school district emphasizes preparation, innovation, and customization.
With opportunities for a great education and adjacency to nature, Pleasant Valley offers something for both residents as well as visitors.
