Excursion Description

This eco-exploration includes a guided nature hike, bald eagles, Alaskan reindeer, a native totem carver and a historic sawmill at an exclusive reserve by the forested mountains of rustic Herring Cove.  

On this beautiful excursion you will:  

  • Tour this pristine natural environment, home to eagles, black bear, seals, a variety of birds and other species attracted by the major salmon runs in the abundant marine estuary.  
  • See wildlife and photograph live eagles up close, interact with reindeer, and observe a master native totem pole carver at work.  Follow as your naturalist guides you along an improved trail through the dense forest, among tall stands of hemlock, spruce and Alaska cedar.  
  • Make stops at strategically located viewing areas.  
  • Let your guide lead you to a protected open estuary, where you follow Eagle Creek along an elevated wooden boardwalk overlooking grassy wetlands.  
  • Learn that major runs of salmon return to spawn here.  
  • Watch and listen to the symphony of bird activity in this spectacular setting.  
  • Learn that during the spawning season bears and seals feed on salmon in Eagle Creek and Great the likelihood of viewing these fascinating animals is good; bald eagles and other birds wait for scraps in the estuary.  
  • Hike the half-mile trail and at the conclusion, feed Alaskan reindeer and see a Bald Eagle and a Great Horned Owl in a private setting as an Alaska Wildlife Foundation raptor specialist explains the heritage and habitat of America’s national symbol.  
  • Be guided through the historic Herring Bay Lumber Company Sawmill, established by legendary pioneer Ben Fleenor.  
  • Observe a master native totem pole carver at work. 
  • Enjoy complimentary snacks and beverages and take advantage of the shopping opportunities in the General Store.
