Today, Kilby General Store is a world-class 1920s living historical site, complete with costumed interpreters. This 5-acre BC Heritage attraction includes a 1906 General Store Museum, Manchester House Hotel & Post Office, as well as friendly farm animals and an orchard playground.

Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival

Every year, the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival (FVBEF) celebrates the beauty and biodiversity of the Harrison Mills region by honouring the Season of the Eagles and the Cycle of the Salmon. Deep in the heart of ‘Sasquatch Country’, and due to recent global shifts beginning in 2010, visitors witness the world’s largest gathering of wintering bald eagles. The raptors are drawn to the region by the millions of spawning salmon that travel up the Fraser River to tributaries, such as the Harrison River. The Chehalis Flats and Harrison River estuary are also home to diverse wildlife including trumpeter swans, ducks, seals, bears, coyotes, deer and the great white sturgeon.

Bald Eagle Biologist, David Hancock of the Hancock Wildlife Foundation is a renowned advocate for this phenomenon.

For thousands of years, the First Nation Peoples have lived harmoniously with the land and water. In present time, the Sts’Ailes work in collaboration with the Fraser Valley Bald Eagle Festival, the District of Mission, the Salmon Stronghold, and the Hancock Wildlife Foundation where they welcome visitors and share the knowledge they have gained over the generations.

The festival includes designated viewing sites, which are free to the public (Map), food stations (last year the Sts’Ailes hosted their first salmon celebration) tours, speakers, exhibitors, displays, carving and weaving demonstrations, activities, workshops and boat tours.  For more details visit fvbef.ca

Sasquatch Sightings

Either the most complex and sophisticated hoax in the history of Anthropology has continued for centuries without being exposed or the most manlike and largest non human primate has managed to survive in parts of North America and remains undiscovered by modern science.”

Professor G.W. Gill – President of the American Board of Forensic Anthroplogy

The Harrison region is often referred to as Sasquatch Country. Indigenous to the area are the Sts’Ailes. The dialect spoken by the Sts’Ailes, whose name means “beating heart”, includes the word sesqac, which is the source of the English word “sasquatch“. The vicinity of Harrison Bay, Harrison Mills and the lower Harrison River is reputed to have the greatest number and density of Sasquatch sightings worldwide.

The Sasquatch is also the emblem of the Chehalis First Nation and is sacred in Sts’Ailes culture.

These guides provide an adventurous tour of the Sasquatch story.
