Explore Squamish

Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park

Located along the west side of the Squamish River, Brackendale Eagles Provincial Park is a 755-hectare park that was established to protect critical bald eagle habitat for feeding, perching, and roosting. The park is closed for access by the public between October and March every year, to allow the eagles an opportunity to feed and rest during the harsh winter season. The Eagle Run viewing shelter, located on the municipal dyke across from the BC Easter Seals Camp Squamish at 41015 Government Road, offers a prime location for viewing the wintering bald eagles in the park across the river. At the shelter, you’ll find an interpretive display and information on our eagle population as well as the salmon life cycle.

Visit Eagle Run on site Saturdays and Sundays from 10 am - 3 pm during the peak eagle-viewing months between November 9 and mid-January 2020 as well as through Christmas Week and you’ll also find members of the EagleWatch Interpretive Program. The volunteers are equipped with high-power spotting scopes to help you gain an even better understanding of our local birds of prey.

Getting There:

Exit the Sea to Sky Highway at Garibaldi Way and head north on Government Road to the viewing area.
