Every fall millions of salmon return to the Harrison River to spawn. This natural wonder is matchd by an incredible migration of thousands of Bald Eagles who return annually to the Harrison Mills area to feast on the salmon once they have spawned.
To celebrate and honour this incredible natural wonder the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival started nearly 20 years ago. Centred in Harrison Mills area where the Harrison River widens and offers shallow gravel bars for the returning salmon it is possible to see up to 10,000 Bald Ealges feasting on salmon. While it is not possible to see the eagles directly from Harrison, Harrison Mills is only a short 20 minute drive away
The Harrison weekend celebrating the returning Bald Eagles takes place the last weekend in November starting on Saturday November 29th and includes:
