Every year between December and February, thousands of bald eagles migrate to the “magic” Skagit River to winter and feed on the spawning Chum Salmon. It is one of the things that makes the Skagit so special. This trip has been the hallmark of our service, offering free outdoor recreation and environmental education programs to disadvantaged youth, for the last 12 years. Our volunteer staff is gearing up to host a up to 100 disabled, refugee and low income and youth and children this January. And we will also be hosting a opportunity for donors to make a contribution and join the trip. The volunteers and staff of WSI want to thank you for your support this year and offer you a closer look at what we do. We will guide you down 10 miles of river through the Blad Eagle Sanctuary, counting hundres of birds and enjoying the endless mountain scenery. We will provide all the necessary rating equipment, plenty of hot chocolate and coffee and a hearty riverside lunch. All you’ll need is some warm layers, a camera and a sense of adventure.
Reservations can be made by calling Hunter at (206) 459-7334. Donations of $100 / adult and $50 / child can be made online or by sending a check to WSI PO Box 554 Mountlake Terrace, WA 98043
We will me at 10 in Marblemount. And we will end the day at Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport around 3 pm (times are tentative and are subject to change). We will be on the river for roughly 3 hours rain, shine or snow so dress appropriately (think skiing, snowshoeing or hiking in the rain) with plenty of warm waterproof layers and boots ( I have extra of everything if you’re feeling unprepared).
For overnight accomodations we recommend one of the quaint cabin rentals nearby:For more infoabout the river go to:
