Hawk Mountain Sanctuary

The Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is just a few miles up the road from my home. It's mountain top home can be seen from my kitchen window.

Hawk Mountain: Celebrating 75 Years of Raptor Conservation, 1934-2009. Located in east-central Pennsylvania, Hawk Mountain Sanctuary is the world's first refuge for birds of prey. Open year-round, visitors enjoy scenic vistas, 8-miles of ridge and valley trails, a Visitor Center, Bookstore, and native plant garden, and each autumn, the chance to observe large numbers of hawks, eagle and falcons as they migrate past our lookouts. Operating as a non-profit eco-tourism site, your trail fee or membership dues help support scientific research, public education and Sanctuary maintenance.
