JEWEL BASIN HAWK WATCH FIELD TRIP
September 18, 2022free
Dan Casey will lead a trip to the Jewel Basin Hawk Watch site on Sunday, September 18 from 9AM-6 PM. The second half of September offers peak numbers and diversity of passing raptors. We expect to see more than 100 hawks of 10 or more species, if conditions are right. This trip involves a 2.2 mile hike of moderate difficulty (each way), gaining 1,400 vertical feet from the Jewel Basin parking lot. Attendees should wear sturdy footwear; hiking poles are recommended.

The trip is limited to 10 participants. Please contact Dan at (406) 270
