Science Beyond the SuperSanctuary

Although the Harris Center welcomes scientific study on our protected lands, our conservation research work isn’t limited to the SuperSanctuary.

Our popular citizen science programs bring people and science together throughout the Monadnock Region, and the Pack Monadnock Raptor Observatory — a partnership with New Hampshire Audubon — collects fall hawk migration data from the summit of Pack Monadnock in Miller State Park.
