Join the Harris Center and Wings of the Dawn for the long-awaited release of rehabilitated raptors back to the wild! During this special event, raptor rehabilitator Maria Colby will facilitate the release of several birds of prey that have been in her care due to injury or illness. Harris Center naturalists will also be on hand to discuss the raptor migration, which will be at peak season. Come be part of the excitement as these raptors get a second chance at freedom!

The Hawk Watch will be operating all day, but the raptor release will commence promptly at 1 p.m. Plan to arrive early, as there may be crowds. The event is free, but donations to the Harris Center and Wings of the Dawn are always appreciated. The raptor release will be canceled in the event of unfavorable weather, so check back here for updates if the forecast looks questionable.

Although registration is not required for this event, reservations are required for visiting Miller State Park, along with a modest entrance fee. Spaces are going fast, so book your driving or hiking pass today
on the Miller State Park website.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education and the NH Department of Natural and Cultural Resources, Division of Parks and Recreation.
