Bald Eagle Viewing
Almost 4,000 American bald eagles gather along a 5 mile stretch of the Chilkat River near Haines and Klukwan each fall. Attracted by a late run of salmon, eagles come from all over Alaska, British Columbia and as far away as the state of Washington. Starting in October, hundreds and hundreds of eagles can be seen along sand bars or in nearby cottonwood trees. Two dozen or more eagles in a single tree is not uncommon. When the eagles come to the Chilkat and how long they stay varies from year to year depending on food availability and weather. The season begins late September with the onset of vibrant fall foliage. The number of eagles dwindles by February. Come join the Bald Eagle Festival during the first several weeks of November!
