Exploring the Haines Highway
Mile 8.3 / Km 13.4: heading north you now enter the Alaska Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve, consisting of 48,000 acres of valley-bottom along the Chilkat, Kleheni, and Tsirku Rivers. From early October until late February there are large concentrations of bald eagles here, but not in the summer. The section of the Haines Highway between Miles 18 and 24 are the main viewing area for eagle watchers and are considered critical habitat in the preserve.
