Celebrate the spectacle of raptor (bird of prey) migration on Saturday, September 22, in Yellowstone National Park’s Hayden Valley. Two programs will provide opportunities to learn about raptors and the role they play in Yellowstone and beyond:
- 9 a.m. – Presentation on raptor ecology and identification in the lobby of the Lake Lodge.
- 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Join park rangers to observe raptors at a road pullout located in Hayden Valley nine miles north of Fishing Bridge Junction and 6.6 miles south of Canyon Junction. Look for signs, spotting scopes, and uniformed rangers at the program location.
People should bring their own binoculars, water, snacks, and a lawn chair for comfortable viewing. Both programs are free to attend. For more information, please call Katy Duffy at 307-699-2696.
