Experience California's Annual Raptor Migration 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24  •  9:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Did you know we have a hawk migration hot spot just north of us located in the Marin Headlands? It’s true! Every fall hundreds of volunteers from the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) spend thousands of hours counting and identifying the thousands of raptors that fly over on their migration south. The GGRO’s mission is to inspire the preservation of California raptor populations as they track the Golden Gate migration. We will continue to Hawk Hill where we will join the hawk watchers of GGRO as they look to the skies and count hawks, eagles, falcons, and vultures, birds collectively called “raptors.” Biologist and raptor expert Ryan Phillips and Lisa Myers co-lead this tour. Call the store to reserve your seat: (408) 358-9453.
Fee: $60 includes transportation.
