PORTLAND, Ore. – Corps park rangers invite the public to The Dalles Dam visitor center to view bald eagles roosting in their natural habitat along the Columbia River. The visitor center will be open Saturdays and Sundays in January from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Park rangers will be available to answer questions, help people use spotting scopes (provided by the Corps) and teach basic bird identification tips. Visitors are encouraged to bring their own scopes, binoculars and cameras. These weekend events are family-friendly, free and accessible to all people.

Saturday, Jan. 19, is the ninth annual Eagle Watch event, when visitors can also see live raptor shows in addition to eagle-watching. Eagle Watch is co-hosted with partners from the U.S. Forest Service, Columbia Gorge Discovery Center and Rowena Wildlife Clinic.

The Dalles Dam is a prime winter location for migrating bald eagles. It's typical to see more than 30 eagles from the visitor center parking lot and adjacent Seufert Park, which are both open to the public every day from dusk until dawn.

The Dalles Dam Visitor Center is located off exit 87 of I-84, traveling east on Bret Clodfelter Way. Inclement weather may cause the event to be rescheduled. For more information contact The Dalles Lock & Dam Ranger Office at 541-506-7857 or visit
