Birds of Prey Festival

The Birds of Prey Festival (formerly Raptor Day) is a free family event held at Lone Pine State Park that usually happens the third Saturday of September (in 2018, it will be September 15).

Each year, hundreds of people gather at the Lone Pine State Park Interpretive Center to observe migrating raptors and celebrate birds and the long-term beauty, conservation, and ecological health of Northwest Montana. In 2017, we had over 500 participants! Families and individuals of all ages are invited to engage in activities, educational booths and enjoy speakers. The indoor afternoon sessions are training for our Hawk Watch volunteer observers in the Jewel Basin. We need more observers! Join us!

Check back for the schedule of activities for the 10th Annual Raptor Day on September  15, 2018. Starting with a 7:30 AM bird walk, the main events will begin at 9:00 AM and end at 3:00 PM.
