Such a hidden charm. I stumbled upon this place just by accident and I'm so glad that I did. It's a 2 hr walking tour but the walk was so pleasant and went by so fast. I've learned so much about the eagles, the connection they have with the salmon, the forest, and the wetland. All thanks to our tour guide Joe. He is so knowledgable and friendly. Other staff is also super nice and welcoming. Thank you so much for your wonderful work.

Thanks for this positive review. We are glad you found us. We try to make it easy by posting on all the typical social media platforms, but we also have a sign right on highway 20 outside of Rockport. I'm glad that you were able to join on of our walks. They take place weekends in December and January at 11am and 1:30pm. We hope to expand into October and November next year. I appreciate that you mention the other staff members. Some of our volunteers have been with us for twenty-five years! We are all committed to environmental education and appreciate all visitors. Thanks again and we hope to see you next year.

Volunteer staff is very knowledgeable and friendly while educating about animals and their preservation. Great for kids with interactive activities. Sweet little gift shop. In a beautiful part of the state, worth the trek off the beaten path.

Thanks so much for your positive review of our center and the volunteer staff. We have some truly dedicated volunteers; many of them have years of experience in the field of education. We are so grateful for them and I know they appreciate the positive feedback. It is important for visitors to understand that we offer more than our guided walks- we also open our Interpretive Center with educational displays, volunteer staff, and our gift shop. All purchases at the gift shop help support our mission here at the Skagit River Interpretive Center. Please take a look at our shop online at our website: www.skagiteagle.org. Once there, click on link to our "nature store."

Thanks for your positive review. There are some great views along the river. I remember we had good views of three bald eagles on that walk. Bald eagles come to the upper Skagit River to feed on a winter run of chum salmon. When the run is strong, it is possible to see dozens of bald eagles during our two hour walk. This year, the run is weak and so the numbers of eagles is lower than year's past. We emphasize the relationship between the eagles, salmon and the forest and explain why the Skagit River is unique and important. So even if we don't see huge numbers of bald eagles on any particular day, the walk is worthwhile!

Thanks for your positive review. I am glad you mentioned the camping nearby. Many do not know that there are rental cabins available at Howard Miller Steelhead Park, which is just across the street from our Interpretive Center. They also have RV hookups and tent camping. It is beautiful here along the Skagit River. I am also glad you mentioned that it was an easy walk for all ages. We are kid-friendly and the trail is mostly flat. Depending on the day, there could be mud, snow or puddles of water so as long as you are prepared it is a fun learning experience.
