“If you like eagles and nature and getting caught in the rain.
If you hate the thought of pollution and have half a brain.
If you love making things better in a fun way, by hosting an event.
We have a committee for you…it won’t cost you a cent.”
The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival Committee is looking for volunteers to join this fun group of nature enthusiasts to help us create our annual festival. Each year the event continues to grow so we need YOU to keep it going.
Drop us an email or visit the website to find out more about the Society. Some of our volunteers come out to monthly meetings and others volunteer during the November festival weekend.
