The Dalles Dam visitor center winter hours extended for January Eagle Watch

Published Jan. 2, 2018

PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers invites guests to learn about raptors and other migratory birds and see them in the wild this winter. The Dalles Dam Visitor Center will be open 9 a.m. to 3 p.m Saturdays and Sundays for the month of January. 

The Dalles Dam Visitor Center is the perfect place to discover winter wildlife as it's a prime location for roosting bald eagles. It's not uncommon to see more than 30 eagles at any given time, which is why so many visitors use the parking lot and adjacent Seufert Park as a staging area for eagle viewing. Some prefer to park and hike while others just view from their vehicle.  

This year we'd like to accommodate our winter travelers by having the visitor center open on weekends as a place to warm up, before or after eagle viewing.  Corps park rangers will be available to answer questions, help people use spotting scopes (which we provide) and teach some basic bird identification tips and tricks.  Interactive activities and hands-on displays will be available.

Additionally, the Corps will host its eighth annual Eagle Watch event on Saturday, January 20th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.  Join park rangers for a fun filled day of birds of prey educational programming and live raptor viewing provided by our partners – the Discovery Center, U.S. Forest Service, and Rowena Wildlife Clinic!  

The Dalles Dam Visitor Center is located just north of Interstate 84 at exit 87. After exiting the highway, turn east onto Bret Clodfelter Way and follow the road to the visitor center. For more information and to register for tours, please contact The Dalles Lock and Dam Ranger Office at 541-506-7857 or 541-296-9778, or visit the dam’s website at
