Annual Yellowstone Hawk Watch Slated for September 23

Come to Yellowstone National Park Saturday, September 23 and celebrate the park’s raptor population during the annual Hawk Watch.

The Hawk Watch is a free event that celebrates raptor ecology and migration in America’s first national park.

According to a Yellowstone press release, interested visitors should meet at Fishing Bridge Visitor Center at 9 a.m. Park rangers will be on-site demonstrating proper raptor identification. Afterward, visitors will travel north to the Hayden Valley.

Additional rangers will be stationed at a Hayden Valley roadside pullout nine miles north of Fishing Bridge between 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.

If you want to skip the raptor identification course, you can also get to the event from Canyon; the rangers will be approximately 6.6. miles south of Canyon Village.

Rangers recommend you bring a lawn chair, water, snacks, and binoculars.

For more information, please contact Katy Duffy at 307-699-2696.
