The Bald Eagle Our Great Conservation Success Story.

Festivals and Fun

Bald Eagles are iconic.  They are big spectacular predators but prefer to be pirates and scavengers.  They are very territorial but gather by the thousands to share in and squabble over temporary and annual food surpluses like the spawned out salmon carcasses.  The bald eagle is the symbol of wildness but it has invaded our city parks and suburban areas where they can reproduce more successfully than in the wilderness.   The Bald Eagle is the American National Symbol – but most bald eagles live in and pass through Canada.  But we Canadians like to share so we invite you all to come to the World’s Greatest Bald Eagle Gathering Site – the Fraser River Bald Eagle Festival at Harrison Mills, British Columbia this fall.  Thousands of eagles will be here -- Will you?

The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival at Harrison Mills, at the confluence of the Chehalis and Harrison Rivers, has become the most famous and reliable place to see bald eagles in the entire world.  In December of 2010 7,362 bald eagles were counted in a small section of this area.  Over 10,000 were estimated to be in the normal Festival count area from Harrison Bay northward along the Harrison River to the Chehalis Flats.  This incredible world record aggregation of a large predator is an annual event.
