 Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival 2018

Pateros, September 15, 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Join the Chelan and Entiat Ranger Districts, North Central Washington Audubon Society, and HawkWatch International this fall for the ninth annual Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival!

This family-friendly event combines free activities in Pateros’ Memorial Park with trips to Chelan Ridge to learn about and celebrate raptors as they journey to winter territories. At the park, participants will fi nd vendors, live raptors, interpretive booths, and projects for kids.

Friday night, September 14, we will offer a workshop with an expert from HawkWatch International on raptor migration and fi eld identifi cation to prepare you for your trip up to the ridge. The trip to and from Chelan Ridge lasts four hours and can include seeing banded raptors released. From 8 am to noon, there will be a field trip to Wells Wildlife Refuge. We are working on other field trips as well. 

More information and on-line registration for the trip to Chelan Ridge, fi eld trip(s), and workshop will be available July 15 at www.ncwaudubon.org. If you have any questions please contact Richard Scranton at rscran4350@yahoo.com.
