Recently, the members of Events & Adventures Seattle got to experience an amazing event that truly showcased the natural beauty we get to enjoy and appreciate here in the Pacific Northwest! The Events & Adventures Bald Eagle Float Trip was a wonderful opportunity to brave the elements and immerse ourselves in this picturesque natural environment. Members of the Seattle club were tremendously excited for chance to catch our national symbol in its own world!
Bundled up in lots of layers, we trekked into the January cold and were rewarded with gorgeous views of the Skagit River Valley and the bald eagles that migrate there each winter. They call the valley home for several months of the year after migrating south. There is also a sanctuary in the valley that presents a safe area for both the birds and the researchers that are studying them. It was amazing how much we learned about the bald eagle and its life in Washington, all while experiencing the native beauty of their habitat.
All the members were thrilled with our bald eagle float trip.
Though seeing a bald eagle in our area isn’t unheard of, it is great to see them in their natural environment. We are looking forward to more fun outdoor events, especially as we begin to transition into spring. In February, we will be hosting a volunteer tree planting, which will provide our members with a to give back a little something to that Pacific Northwest green that we all know and love so much! The Adopt-a-Stream Foundation is partnering with Events & Adventures for a fun, rewarding experience where we can walk away with chilly fingers and warm hearts. If you haven’t already checked out our upcoming Seattle events, be sure to do so soon and snag a seat (or a shovel!) while you can!
