Eagle Watching & Tracking (Grades 2-5)
Deming Eagle Park
Just east of Bellingham, the Deming Eagle Park is a haven for eagles wintering in the Pacific Northwest and on the hunt for fish in the roaring Nooksack River. Those mighty birds of prey join other year-round birds and residents who regularly visit the Nooksack shores. On this crisp winter day, we’ll explore the riverbanks looking high for the eagles perched in cottonwoods and low for scat, tracks, hair, and other animal signs. We’ll be wondering and wandering with our questions to unlock mysteries of who’s doing what along these shores - and why. This is an open area (the better to see wildlife!) so participants should be sure their personal shelter of warm and waterproof layers can handle several hours of any sort of weather.
Note: we will take the Wild Whatcom bus. Please meet at the Montessori at Samish Woods, 1027 Samish Way in Bellingham to drop-off and again for pick-up. The specific location along the Nooksack River is TBD based upon river levels and road access.
Cost should not be a barrier for participation. Financial assistance is available for families who need it. Please fill out the brief financial assistance form during registration.
