Brackendale – Winter Home of the Bald Eagle – Squamish

Brackendale - Winter Home of the Bald Eagle - Squamish, BCA residential community just north of Squamish, Brackendale centers around the local arts community. The Brackendale Art Gallery includes a theatre, teahouse and impressive shows and exhibits. On its cedar walls are works from local and visiting artists, and fine Salish carvings. This community also boasts the largest gathering of bald eagles in North America. The art gallery sponsors the annual eagle count each January, drawing international crowds. 
Nearly 4,000 eagles were counted in 1994.                  www.PhotosCanada.com

Eagles can be viewed from the Tenderfoot Creek Fish hatchery in the Cheakamus Valley down to the Squamish Estuary near downtown Squamish. The eagles start arriving in mid November and stay until mid February, with the largest concentration in late December to January. The most popular view point is the Eagle Viewing Dyke across from the Easter Seal Camp between Squamish and Brackendale. For more information and an eagle viewing map, visit the Visitor Information Centre (phone (604) 892-9244) in downtown Squamish.
