Learn about Birds of Prey! This is a fun, free, family weekend event where visitors can get up close to a golden eagle or a great horned owl, view wild golden and bald eagles, as well as other birds of prey, at Lake Billy Chinook, talk to birds of prey experts and find out what research is going on in the state, learn how to make a backyard more inviting to our feathered friends, see Central Oregon Eagle Watch Art Contest winners, kids will learn about bird adaptations and build a bluebird house or bird feeder. Lunch is provided by PGE and Earth2O; freewill donations support Madras High School JROTC. Indian Fry Bread will be available for sale. We will have great prizes for our silent auction and all new event souvenirs.
All proceeds go directly to the Oregon Eagle Foundation. JR Beaver, Smokey Bear and Larry the Light Bulb will be there on Saturday. Don’t miss out, Sunday, the Quartz Creek Drummers and Dancers will demonstrate native tribal dances – a must see!

In addition, after the main Eagle Watch event on Sat/Sun at Round Butte Park overlooking Pelton Dam, folks who don’t want to drive quite as far can meet David Vick, Naturalist and active member of the East Cascades Audubon Society at Smith Rock from 3-5pm on Sunday 2/25 for an Eagle watching experience there. It is an extension of the EW weekend up at The Cove Palisades/Lake Billy Chinook.
