Learn about bald eagles with programs on Skagit River

It's time to head over to the Skagit River to see one of the largest wintering populations of bald eagles in the lower 48 states. Visitors can see and learn about them from volunteers with the Eagle Watchers Program hosted by the U.S. Forest Service.

Three viewing stations with off-highway parking along North Cascades Highway provide spotting scopes and binoculars to help you see the birds up close. Volunteers will staff stations Saturdays and Sundays, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Dec. 21-Jan. 26.

Eagle Watcher stations are located at Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport, Sutter Creek Rest area (Milepost 100) and the Marblemount Fish Hatchery. Look for the yellow signs. Call 360-856-5700, ext. 515, for more information.
