Hawk Watch on the Mt. Holyoke Range

On Sunday, September 13, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., join U.S. Forest Service Biologist Dave King to observe the migration of hawks and other raptors from a bird’s eye view on the Mt. Holyoke Range. Bring your best binoculars, a bird guidebook, and your eagle-eyes for this popular outing. Learn about hawk and raptor behavior, life cycles, and conservation efforts to protect migratory birds. 

This annual outing is one of our most popular, so don’t miss it!
