Did you know that the Harrison River has one of the largest concentrations of bald eagles in North America in a one square mile radius? Yes they are right here in your backyard. With over 2000 eagles feeding on the spawning salmon in the area it truly is a sight to see. The best way to experience the eagles is by boat and two tour companies based in Harrison Hot Springs will take visitors to view the eagles and most likely you will also see heron, seals, bears and spawning salmon.
The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival celebrates the bald eagle with their annual event Nov 21/22. Several sites have been established in and around the Eastern Fraser Valley with activities and viewing sites. Be sure to check them out at www.fraservalleybaldeaglefestival.ca. Conservationist and author David Hancock through the Hancock Wildlife Foundation have set several eagle cams in the area. Visit www.hancockwildlife.org to view them.
