K-12 & HOME SCHOOL PROGRAM
The Skagit River Bald Eagle Interpretive Center is located in the pristine Howard Miller Steelhead Park in Rockport, Washington, on the federally designated Wild and Scenic Skagit River. The Skagit River Watershed is home to the densest population of wintering bald eagles in all of the lower 48 states.
The Skagit River Interpretive Center school program provides hands-on, minds-on learning experiences for school aged children that reinforce fundamental concepts in science education. Our focus is the Skagit River ecosystem and we work with teachers, parents, and homeschool groups to tailor the curriculum for required learning goals and age appropriate materials. We focus primarily on the connectivity of everything in the Skagit River Watershed, focusing on the bald eagles.
This is accomplished by having indoor activities combined with a nature walk. These can be adjusted. Older kids may prefer during a full nature walk while our littlest learners may want to stick to the inside program.
Program length is generally 2 hours but can vary based on individual program needs and to accommodate for travel time.
We request a suggested donation of $5 per person.
If your club, association, or other organized group would like to have a private tour during week day please contact us to set this up. These also focus on the connectivity involved in the Skagit River Watershed.
For the 2023/2024 season: Mondays and Tuesday are preferred to host private groups and homeschools but this can change season to season based on the availability of our volunteers.
