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.
