Dr. Wargo and the Eaglets Team
Brian M. Wargo is a science educator who teaches at Freedom Area High School and is the founder of Freedom Area’s Naturalist Club. The goal of the club is to engage young people in naturalistic research. Each week students meet for presentations, bird walks, lessons on naturalism, and a host of other activities. Because Wargo is a hawkcounter at Allegheny Front Hawk Watch, a board member for the Hawk Migration Association of North America, and the Eastern Flyway editor for Hawk Migration Studies, he is preoccupied with hawks. Because of this, Wargo is constantly talking to his students about hawks and shows them how to examine raptor data, take pictures of hawks, and identify hawks at Freedom.
For Raptorthon 2019, the Naturalist Club will be traveling to Allegheny Front Hawk Watch. While there, the students will complete the Junior Hawkwatcher Program. It will be the first time that any of the current members will visit an iconic hawkwatch! There is excitement in the air…and we hope that raptors will also be in the air on this special day.
All donations directly support the Allegheny Front Hawk Watch and HMANA programs.
Thank you for your support!
