Land based Eagle viewing at Harrison Mills
Date: November 22 & 23
After the first weekend (the Festival) some of the sites are not set up for public viewing so it is best to come prepared with your own binoculars or viewing scopes. Please also note that many areas are environmentally sensitive spots so please do your best to leave “no foot print”. There are pull outs up Morris Valley Rd just north of Eagle Point where you can view the flats. Pretty Estates Resort has a wonderful trail that leads down to the river’s edge, which is also the very name of the restaurant on site where you may want to lunch before or after your viewing time. At the end of the trail you will now find the brand new observation deck. If there are a large numbers of eagles they tend to spread out down the river, which means that the park and dike just below Kilby Historic Site are also excellent places to explore for roosting eagles. This weekend Harrison River RV resort will also open its doors to allow eagle viewing from its shoreline. Happy viewing!
