Volunteer interpreters share their knowledge and love of bald eagles with people from around the world. The Eagle Watch program runs from late November through January. Volunteers are at the Eagle Run viewing shelter on weekends and throughout Christmas Week, from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm. Eagle Run dike is an accessible site: there is a ramp at the south end. In the winter months, snow on the ramp is cleared by volunteers when possible but access to the site is more limited.
Becoming an Eagle Watch volunteer is a wonderful way to learn about bald eagles, meet interesting people and have fun! Volunteers commit to a minimum of three, three hour shifts. Volunteer group events include: training day, mid-season pot luck, and a wind-up party.
The Eagle Watch Volunteer Interpretive Program was established in 1995 as part of the Nature Conservancy of Canada’s Eagles of Brackendale project. The program is coordinated by the Squamish Environment Society (SES).
