A celebration of the Salmon,
the Eagles, and the Sturgeon
October 13th, 2022 – January 15th, 2023
The Season of the Wild is a tribute to its predecessor the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival. The Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival promoted and practiced safe bald eagle viewing for 25+ years. While the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival is no longer operating, their hard work and spirit lives on as we begin to bring back this event as a season-long self-guided experience.
The Season of the Wild tells the story of the salmon, sturgeon, and eagles here in the Harrison River Valley. Every year, the salmon swim up the Harrison River and come to rest in our tributaries to lay their eggs. The spawning season typically begins mid-October, with prime viewing from October through early November. This event, along with the cooling temperatures in the North, contributes to the large gathering of Bald Eagles seen here in October – January; with the peak eagle viewing in November.
