|Description:||Discover the Valley of the Eagles
The enormously popular Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival takes place the third weekend in November in perhaps the most biologically diverse and important areas in British Columbia. Deep in the heart of “Sasquatch Country” you will find North America’s third largest gathering of bald eagles. The raptors are drawn to the area by the millions of spawning salmon that travel up the Fraser River to tributaries such as the Harrison River. The estuary is also home to incredible wildlife such as trumpeter swans, ducks, seal, bear, coyote, deer and the great white sturgeon.
From Mission to Chilliwack, many exciting venues offer excellent eagle watching opportunities and a range of activities and adventures that include jet boat eco-river tours; a Chehalis River walking tour; a diverse abundance of local wildlife; environmental presentations, naturalists and interpreters; historic and ancient aboriginal sites; displays by local artists; and lots of hands on activities and entertainment.
