Petersburg Wildlife Viewing
Eagle's Roost Park
Bald eagles congregate in the trees at Eagle’s Roost Park between late April and the end of June to scan the waters of Wrangell Narrows for fish. If you're lucky, you might spot an eagle fly off the trees to pluck a fish from the water. Outside of May and June, eagle sightings at the park are possible but far less common, as most eagles are elsewhere nesting or looking for food.
Walk down the stairs to the beach for the best view of the treetops.
