Alaska Bald Eagle Festival
November 10, 2014 - November 16, 2014$150.00 - $750.00
Join us for the 20th Annual Alaska Bald Eagle Festival in Haines, Alaska!
Celebrating the largest gathering of Bald Eagles in the world! The American Bald Eagle Foundation and the people of Haines welcome you to the 2014 Alaska Bald Eagle Festival! Festival activities are held at the American Bald Eagle Foundation, conveniently located at the corner of Second Avenue and the Haines Highway. Here you will attend photography workshops, live raptor presentations with our resident raptors, guest speakers, presentations, and the Artist of the Year demonstrations.
Daily buses and vans will carry you safely to the Alaska Bald Eagle Preserve to witness the annual “Gathering of the Eagles.” At this time of year 3,000-4,000 eagles can be found in the preserve feeding on a late run of salmon. The Festival includes evening presentations, so you won’t miss a minute of daylight at the Chilkat Eagle Preserve!
The three-day American Bald Eagle Photographers workshop will be offered as well. It includes transportation to the Eagle Preserve. Seats are limited to 12 students so instructors can provide hands-on lessons. Workshops include lunch in the field. These workshops sell out each year, so sign up early and reserve your seat!
