News Alert:  Harrison Salmon Festival is about to happen but with a new and wonderful twist.  In addition to thousands of spawning salmon the Sts'ailes will be putting on a Salmon Theater and Salmon Barbeque.  Also I will be giving a talk on the Harrison Salmon Festival at Weaver Creek on October 17 - 18.

The Harrison Salmon Stronghold and the Sts'ailes First Nations are holding their first full 5 day Salmon Festival this year at the incredible Weaver Creek Spawning Grounds, just up the road from our regular Bald Eagle Festival sites.  This incredible spawning site annually hosts some 20,000 to 30,000 human visitors for close inspection of the spawning salmon.

David Hancock Report on 2014 Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival

Festivals and Fun

Nov.  15 -16,  2014  Harrison Mills, British Columbia

First, last weekend's weather was superb -- bright, sunny and cool.  However this was, unfortunately, our first cold spell of the fall or winter.  Juneau, Alaska had had only a couple of days with night frost.  Our HWF member, Christian Sasse, had returned this week from the Chilkat River in Alaska and he reported that only 52 eagles was his biggest count of eagles -- down a few from the 1200 to 2600 eagles I usually recorded at there this time.  The northern rivers of Alaska, Yukon and BC were all still unfrozen and each was continuing to yield spawned out salmon.  Until freezing weather locks all these northern salmon carcasses under the ice the eagles will stay spread across the northern region - not being driven south or westward to the "warm waters" of the Chilkat River.
