The Skagit River Bald Eagle Awareness Team (SRBEAT) is the 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that operates the Interpretive Center.
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.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that does not receive any government funding. We depend on volunteers and donations to stay in business.

Our volunteer training on November 20th, 2021 was a resounding success. Six team members, (left to right) Eric Spandi, Maryann Atkins, Jasmine Neubauer, Patrick Holmes, Nika Lee and Ember La Bounty, joined naturalist/guide trainer Joe Ordonez for an extended walk along the Skagit River.
This photo, taken from downtown Mt. Vernon, shows the Skagit River in full flood. There have been evacuations, power outages and flood damage up and down the river. Our hearts go out to all those affected. The volunteer training scheduled for November 20th at 10:00am will still take place. For those of you training as naturalist walking tour guides, please bring rubber boots or waterproof shoes!
We look forward to seeing you at our Interpretive Center in Rockport at 10:00am Saturday, November 20th!
