2017-18 Season Report

The government shutdown has no effect on our operation - we're still open!

Join us Saturday, January 19th, 2019 for “Garden Ecology: the Good, the Bad, and the Bugly” - a presentation by Holli Watne.

If you live in the Skagit River Watershed, did you know there is a connection between the dandelions and aphids in your yard and the Bald Eagle above our center?  Even if you don’t, come to this talk to learn for about the creepy-crawlies of your yard, why they are important and how the decisions you make on your own land affect the greater ecosystem.

The Skagit River Bald Eagle Interpretive Center at Howard Miller Steelhead Park, Rockport, WA offers opportunities to better understand the Skagit River ecosystem with an emphasis on the winter migration of bald eagles, salmon, and the vital role each play in our environment. Each weekend in December and January we offer Guided Nature Hikes along the scenic Skagit River and a Speaker Series. Our educational programs include a K-12 & Home School Program and Community Group Tours.
