Raptor Festival and Release Day at Pack Monadnock

September 16 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Join NH Audubon for a special send-off: the release of a rehabilitated migratory bird of prey! This annual event is timed to coincide with peak Broad-winged Hawk migration, so bring your binoculars and prepare to witness a spectacle. Festivities will occur all day long at the observatory as we celebrate International Hawk Migration Week, and be sure to arrive well in advance of the release time of 1 pm to ensure a parking spot and have time for festivities. A shuttle bus will take participants to and from the summit between 11:30 am and 2:30 pm. Note that Miller State Park charges admission for entry; event is free, but donations to NH Audubon onsite are welcome. Rain or fog may cancel the hawk release, and check NH Audubon’s Facebook page for updates.
