Hawkwatching at Grandeur Peak

Join us for our Wednesday hawkwatching series this fall migration season.

Because most of our migration sites are in remote areas across the west, we are offering something a little closer for locals.  We will begin with a presentation on migration and raptor identification on Sept 7, and then get outdoors with our eyes to the skies each Wednesday, Sept 14 - Oct 12.  We invite you to join us for any of the field trips listed below, for all or part of the day.

Please register for each field trip individually that you will be attending (click on the field trip date on the events calendar and use the registration link at the bottom of the page). If there are any changes to time, day, or location due to weather or other circumstances, we will communicate with you via email prior to the field trip.  If the flight is good that day, we may stay longer than 2 pm.
