World’s Largest Winter Bald Eagle Gathering
Each fall, thousands of visitors flock to Harrison Mills to view the eagles– an ‘event’ that celebrates the beauty and biodiversity of the Harrison region by honouring the majestic Bald Eagle and the Cycle of the Salmon. Deep in the heart of ‘Sasquatch Country’, visitors will witness the WORLD’s LARGEST concentrated gathering of bald eagles. Why? 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, which is also Canada’s only certified salmon stronghold.The estuary is also home to incredible wildlife, such as trumpeter swans, ducks, seals, bears, coyotes, deer and the great white sturgeon.
With the best views of the Harrison River, Sandpiper Resort has been designated a prime bald eagle viewing destination. While the eagle viewing is a wondrous, natural phenomenon, we encourage everyone to review this document and exercise Bald Eagle Etiquette. Come for the day, walk our forest walk and see the eagles from our viewing gazebo or spend the night in one of our accommodations.
How to best experience the eagles!
Dine fire or patio-side at the River’s Edge Clubhouse Restaurant or Golf Sandpiper and watch the eagles soar. Better yet, why drive home after? Spend the night in a rustic classic 1-bedroom cabin or a 1, 2, or 3 bedroom luxury nature series cabin. Be sure to explore our eagle trail with interpretive signage. See our resort map.
You can also see the eagles on a boat tour. Contact Harrison Eco Tours to learn more.
