Event Details

What is 35 Years & Counting?

35 Years & Counting is a five-week virtual program, culminating in a final gala on Wednesday, November 3rd, where you'll be transported to each of our seven fall migration sites from the comfort of your own home. 

The event will highlight the 35+ years of long-term raptor migration data that we have collected across HawkWatch International's network of migration sites throughout the Western United States. It includes a mix of learning opportunities, lectures, and fun. 

The program begins on Thursday, September 30th and features programs every Tuesday at 12pm Mountain and every Thursday at 6pm Mountain.
