20 Years of Watching the Eagles Soar

Eagle Watch – a “Culver Tradition” since 1996 – was a huge success this year, reports Event Coordinator Erin Bennett. The Saturday/Sunday event at Round Butte Overlook Park was attended by 800 people who enjoyed the displays, programs, and activities provided by the eleven different agencies and organizations represented there. The donation of more than 309 volunteer hours by a total of 26 volunteers made the event a great success.
Aquila, the golden eagle from the Sunriver Nature Center, as usual stole the show – even though J.R. Beaver, Smokey Bear and Larry the Lightbulb all came out for photo ops with the kids. This is not surprising after all, how often do you get to stand two feet away from an amazing apex predator?!  Visitors made commemorative buttons with the new Eagle Watch logo,  175 bluebird houses and 100 bird feeders. Children made flying eagles, plume pens, soared through Eagle Village on a scavenger hunt, and played raptor bingo. The event ended with the Quartz Creek Drummers and Dancers as they performed their cultural dances for visitors.

Special Thank You to all of our volunteers for sharing their time and talents to help make this a great weekend.  Eagle Watch would not be possible without your help!
