Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch Open House
September 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pmFree
The Rockfish Gap Hawk Watch is holding its annual open house and bbq this Saturday, Sept. 21st from 10 am – 3pm. This week marks the peak of fall migration for Broad-winged hawks. Historically, we have had up to 10,000 birds in a single day. More common during this week are days of 500-3,000 raptors flying overhead.
There will be numerous hands-on activities for the kids, educational displays, and a presentation by the Wildlife Center of Virginia with live raptors from 12 noon – 2pm. Come join us for a fun day of activities. Bring your binoculars, sunscreen, and your curiosity. The event is free and open to the public. Donations kindly accepted. Rain or substantial fog delays or cancels the event.
