This September marks the 32nd year of Hitchcock HawkWatch, and you're invited to learn more about their important conservation work!
Swing by the Loess Hills Lodge gallery from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to learn more about what their research is uncovering, enjoy refreshments including lemonade, cookies, and popcorn, and see what raptors are passing through atop the park's 60-foot observation tower. Special HawkWatch displays and refreshments will be available at the lodge on September 23rd, September 30th, October 7th, and October 14th.
A $5 per vehicle entry fee or parks membership is required to enter the park. Thank you!
Hitchcock HawkWatch is a volunteer group that dedicates more than 3,000 hours each year to recording the fall migration of raptors including Red-Tailed Hawks, Bald Eagles, Turkey Vultures, and more.
