Bald Eagle Viewing Sites at Harrison Mills

Festivals and Fun


Please honor the feeding & resting eagles by keeping off the Chehalis Flats Bald Eagle Preserve.  Harrison Mills, BC, and more specifically the alluvial fan of the Chehalis River as it runs into the Harrison River, is the home of the largest wintering population of bald eagles in the world. Annually from November thru December and sometimes into February, 1,000 to 10,000 eagles can be seen on the flats and along that section of the Harrison River valley. Harrison Mills is the world capital of wintering eagles and is only a 50 mile drive from Metro Vancouver, the Bald Eagle Nesting Capitol of the World.

INVITE to Hancock’s Open House – Our FledgeFest 2014:  Sunday, July 13

The Hancocks and their Sandhill Cranes etc. welcome friends to our home:

"Open House -- Open Fields - Afternoon Appys” -- 3 to 7 pm, July 13, 2014”


We welcome all our HWF, eagle and biology friends. Mary and I extend this invitation to our annual Open House -- or FledgeFest 2014, July 13, Sunday 3 to 7PM.

Our party is simply an opportunity for Mary and I and the Hancock Wildlife Foundation to personally say, "Hi, welcome and thanks for your interest and support." Very few of the hosts bite - severely! Not to sound morbid but having gotten this old I want to make sure we celebrate our friends and supporters while I/we am/are still here.

We call this an Open House or FledgeFest 2014 as it is timed to coincide with our eaglets fledging in all of our nests, not just one in particular. In the morning of the 13th I will be taking those who wish to a series of the local eagle nests to view some of our eagles more closely. Please indicate to Karen if you wish to go in a car caravan to some of the eagle nests.

OPEN INVITATION: Again, this invite is to all our HWF friends, mutual supporters, people we know personally and those who just occasionally watch our cams or “lurk” on our forums or are associated with any of the conservation projects so dear to my heart. All are welcome. If you know us or our eagles from our website or other sites, associated TV or community projects, we want you here to celebrate life. We understand a few people from considerable distance will be in our area during that time and we especially hope to meet and share these visitors with our local supporters.

To help Mary our Foundation Directors, Susan Muraja & Rosana Inacio (soon-to-be-Sasse!), and my hard-working Project Coordinator, Karen Bills, will be on hand. Other helpers will be appreciated if the weather fails us. Mary and David will provide food and drink. Susan and Karen have convinced us to gladly accept locals bringing additional plates of “finger food” and/or their drinks so we greatly appreciate that contribution. The RSVP is very important as we need to know how many are coming and who is bringing what.  Will there be 25 or 125 guests? Please notify Karen at karen@hancockwildlife.org to be put on the guest list.

Thanks and we look forward to greeting old and meeting new friends.
