Tucked away in Alaska is the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve where several hundred eagles call this place home. Nestled on the banks of the Chilkat River, this preserve is dedicated to maintaining a place for the bald eagles to nest, forage and live protected. The park is so large that it encompasses nearly 50,000 acres of Alaskan wilderness.

Not only does the park see about 400 bald eagles who live on the grounds year round, it also experiences the annual Fall Congregation. During this time, up to 4,000 bald eagles make the journey to this landscape. This is one of the best viewing times to see the birds.

While the park is very large, one of the best places for visitors to get the opportunity to see these magnificent raptors in the wild is on Haines Highway between mile markers 12-18. If you are interested in even more wildlife, there are also annual salmon runs and bears, moose and mountain goats also roam the woodlands.

The Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve is located about 100 miles north of Juneau. For more information on visiting the preserve, be sure to visit the official website here.
