Some of you already know that David Hancock and I are both directors of the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival held each November on the third weekend. This year it will be Nov. 16 and 17. Many of our Hancock Wildlife Foundation (HWF) eagle cam viewers and members come from all over to view the world's largest gathering of wintering bald eagles. This year we are extending the viewing opportunity for a month and calling it the Season of the Eagles. However the festival itself is only the first of the four weekends, Nov.16 and 17.
David will be speaking both days as well as giving guided tours on the Fraser River Safari and HWF will have a booth in the exhibit hall at Laq'a:mel Hall on Lougheed Hwy. just east of Deroche, BC. So we hope to meet many new faces this year. Bring your binoculars and cameras of course!!
This year we are so pleased to have the opportunity to purchase public service announcements on the local media stations. We plan to blast these promos frequently between now and then to let the public know about this amazing event that is still such a well kept secret and we want to change that. These eagles are only 50 miles east of Vancouver but so few Vancouverites know about this gathering happening in their "backyard".
Here's the promo that will be running on our local stations:
Here's the link to the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle website for more information. There you will also find the .pdf file that you can download and print of our 2013 program and schedule of events and a map, etc.
Here's the link to the Fraser River Safari (FRS) where you can book one of David's guided tours to see the eagles up close in the heated and covered jet boat. You won't be cold or wet and the windows slide open for picture taking as we pull up under the trees that are loaded with eagles. Photographer or not, you will love it. This is definitely the best way to see the bald eagles. The tours with David sell out quickly but we also are on the boat certain days in the following weeks of the Season of the Eagles. So please go to the FRS website to check the availability and dates of tours with David.
