38th Annual Brackendale Winter Eagle Count: January 7, 2024

Good news from Christopher Di Corrado, organizer of this season’s Winter Eagle Count!  “We’ll meet at 9:00 am at the Brackendale Art Galley again this year.”  Experienced and new volunteers are welcome.

For experienced counters: if you are keen and already know what route you want, let us know. Check this map if you need some ideas.

For new counters: here’s some background on the count. We’ll help with picking a route. The route difficulty can vary greatly with weather. If it’s just been raining, routes can be easy to travel around. If we have snow, it can be a much longer walk. As you travel north of Squamish, the routes generally get tougher. The Upper Squamish and Elaho are only for experienced winter explorers!

Contact us to volunteer: please let us know
