Even as the weather gets cooler, there’s so much to discover in the great outdoors.

Tourism Harrison’s Season of the Wild makes its triumphant return this year, running a variety of outdoor events from October to January. It began at Sandpiper Golf Course near Harrison Mills (14282 Morris Valley Road) with a kick-off event featuring expert speakers on local wildlife, seasonal local food and live music by Ryan McAllister.

Earthwise Agassiz (6031 Golf Road) is participating in this year’s Season of the Wild with an upcoming open house on Nov. 12 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event begins with a demonstration of aquatic species monitoring from biologist Dr. Mike Pearson. Participants will learn more about aquatic habitats and how to identify key species.

Introduced in 2022, Season of the Wild is a tribute to the former Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival, which took place during mid-November with the peak of the southern migration of bald eagles. The eagles would traditionally descend on the Harrison River to feast on spawning salmon.
