9/15 - Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival

REGISTRATION

Join HawkWatch International, the US Forest Service Chelan Ranger District, and North Central Washington Audubon Society as we celebrate International Hawk Migration Week during the 9th annual Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival. This free, family event combines activities in Pateros, WA, and field trips to the Chelan Ridge HawkWatch to learn about raptors as they journey to winter territories.

You will get to see raptor demonstrations, visit with local vendors, and take a trip to the spectacular Chelan Ridge HawkWatch where visitors can see raptors such as Cooper’s Hawks up close when they are banded and released. Chelan Ridge sits 5,675 feet above sea level along the flyway of migrating raptors. HawkWatch International field crew who live at the Ridge during the migration season will offer insight into what it is like to live and breathe raptors and show how the birds are banded and tracked. This is an amazing experience with environmental education and interpretation conducted by on-site educators, Forest Service personnel, and volunteers.

We invite the public to visit us at the Chelan Ridge HawkWatch anytime throughout the fall seson to hawk watch with the pros, learn some ID tips, and take in the views from the observation site.


Special thanks to our partners and funders.
