Hitchcock Nature Center

Since 1991, Hitchcock Nature Center’s HawkWatch volunteer group has been recording the migration of thousands of hawks, eagles, owls, and other raptors, and it’s time to celebrate their important work! Help celebrate their 30th anniversary on Sunday, October 17th between 1 - 4:00 p.m. and join us for several fun activities where you and your family can learn more about the fascinating world of raptors:

- Meet live raptors rescued by our friends at Fontenelle Forest
- Attend a presentation from Ty Smedes, a world-traveled wildlife photographer
- Climb up the observation tower and get to know our full-time Hawk Counter Caleb Strand who will share raptor facts
- Meet our experienced HawkWatch volunteers
- Swing by our refreshment table for lemonade and cookies, sponsored by our welcome desk volunteers

Make a day out of it by fitting in a hike before or after and see if you can spy any Hitchcock raptors soaring or perched above! This event is free with park admission or an annual pass.
