The rain did not ruffle any feathers at the Friends of Cheakamus 2nd Annual Eagle Walk on Sunday, December 9th. Nearly thirty nature enthusiasts gathered at Cheakamus Centre for the last member event of 2018, including several young, budding birders!
It was a bird watcher’s paradise with bountiful bald eagles in the trees overhead, a variety of waterfowl in the ponds, and many shorebirds feasting on spawned-out salmon carcasses along the riverbanks.
Thank you to our walk leaders Jason Bigelow, Erika Ellis, and Kate Keogh who shared their experience and knowledge in fun and engaging ways for all ages. A special thank you to master carver Xwalacktun (Rick Harry) for telling the story of the Reconciliation House Post for a lucky few!
It was a delight to walk among these magnificent birds of prey with our friends of Cheakamus. Thank you to everyone who attended.
Keep an eagle eye on our website for upcoming member events as Cheakamus Centre celebrates its milestone 50th Anniversary in 2019.
