Date: April 24, 2021
As the first raptor migration watch site in the world, Hawk Mountain has been monitoring migrating raptors passing by its rocky mountaintop since 1934.
The lookout also is used as a training ground for young raptor conservationists to learn about raptor migration and learn count methods and public education techniques. Each year staff, trainees, and volunteers spend more than 160 days monitoring migration during spring and fall.
In 2021, we celebrate that history of raptor conservation and monitoring with a special Raptorthon to support Hawk Mountain’s long-term monitoring efforts.
Please support Hawk Mountain counters and trainees and show your support for raptor monitoring!
