Pack Monadnock Raptor Release Day
Sunday, September 22, 2019,
3:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Join us for the special send-off of a rehabilitated migratory bird of prey! This annual event is timed to coincide with the peak of the Broad-winged Hawk migration, so bring your binoculars and hope to witness a spectacle. International Hawk Migration Week festivities will occur all day long, but the raptor release takes place at 3 p.m. at the Raptor Observatory atop Pack Monadnock in Miller State Park in Peterborough. Be sure to arrive early to get a parking spot.
The event is free, though there’s a fee to enter Miller State Park ($4 per adult and $2 for children age 6 to 11. Children age 5 and under, and NH residents 65 and older, are free). For more information, contact Phil Brown at (603) 525-3499 or by email.
