The eagles have landed! Bald eagles migrate south each winter in search of food and the Columbia River is a favorite winter vacation home. The Dalles Dam Visitor Center will be open 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2016 for the Corps’ sixth annual Dam Eagle Watch.

Join park rangers for a variety of fun activities. The Corps partners with the U.S. Forest Service and the Rowena Wildlife Clinic to provide educational programs, live raptor viewings inside the facility and eagle watching outside.

This event is free and the site is accessible to visitors with disabilities. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own scopes, binoculars and cameras. The Dalles Dam Visitor Center is located just north of Interstate 84 at exit 87, then east on Bret Clodfelter Way. In case of inclement weather the event will be rescheduled. For more information please contact The Dalles Lock and Dam Ranger Office at 541-506-7857 or visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website.
