Rich Conroy – Militia Hill

11th Raptorthon for Militia Hill!
April 23, 2023

I am always happy to spend a spring weekend looking for migrating raptors during their journey north and raise funds for two very worthwhile groups – the Militia Hill Hawkwatch (MHHW) and the Hawk Migration Association of North America (HMANA).

For Militia Hill, this event has been a great annual fundraiser. It helps us continue to keep the bird feeders at the park entire for all the birds and for park visitors’ viewing enjoyment throughout the year. MHHW also produces educational handouts of various kinds throughout the year, including bird and butterfly lists for our state park, maintains membership in the Pennsylvania Ornithological Society (POS) and HMANA, and makes raptor-related information available guides to share with the public during our watch season.

50% of the funds raised go to HMANA programs, but I’d like to specifically mention your donations’ support for the Hawk Watch Fund (HWF). The HWF offers support to the hawk-watching community through grants to member hawk watch sites for educational materials, construction and maintenance of viewing platforms and hiring counters, etc.

Thanks again for your support!
