Isn't it a thrill to look up and see a winged predator streaking through the sky? Raptors are known to most as elusive, almost mythical creatures - rare to see and deeply inspiring. What most don't know is that these splendid birds migrate in vast numbers. It's possible to study these captivating avians en masse and learn not only about them and their patterns, but also the ecosystems they inhabit, from our neck of the woods to their wintering grounds, some deep in South America.

HawkWatch International's Dave Oleyar and Jesse Watson will lead us through hawk identification so that after this class you can go out and look to the skies with confidence. To contextualize your new skills, they will give interactive education on where migrating raptors concentrate and why. They'll explain the role of HawkWatch International in the west and across the globe with a quick tour of their monitoring network (including local Chelan Ridge). They will illustrate the fascinating meaning of the data collected by HawkWatch crews over 30 years.

If you can't make this specific date or time, you can still register and we will send you a YouTube link to the workshop to view on your own time! All registrants will have access to the class recording for a limited time approximately one week after the workshop.

Launch your curiosity into flight with this presentation from two motivated scientists, generously partnering with the Institute to share the real-world wonder of raptors!
