Love Raptors? This Year's Eagle Festival Has Got You Covered.

There's something undoubtedly awe-inspiring about catching a glimpse of birds of prey.

Eagle viewing is an experience that reminds you how winged wildlife still thrives in the Pacific Northwest where raptors are fed by the salmon in the Stillaguamish River Valley

Arlington, Washington has built an entire festival around viewing their resident eagles. The Arlington - Stillaguamish Eagle Festival is a collaboration between the city and local tribes to celebrate the presence of bald eagles in the area. The self-guided event goes from January 23 - February 13.

This year, the festival's activities are self-guided and/or virtual. Notably, the city is offering a contest open to the public with a $200 prize for the best eagle photo. 

The Eagle Festival brochure showcases eight recommended parks and nature areas for viewing eagles, including Arlington’s Stormwater Wetland Park, Portage Creek Wildlife Area, Squire Creek Park, Fortson Mill Ponds, Port Susan Preserve, and more.
