Focus on Raptors at Hawk Hill

This walk is for 18 and up. Every year thousands of raptors move down the Pacific coast as they head to wintering sites as far away as South America. A large percentage of these birds pass through the Marin Headlands where they are annually documented by the Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO). We’ll start the day with a walk in Rodeo Valley learning to identify these birds and discussing their life histories, then we’ll head up to Hawk Hill for more raptor viewing and to meet GGRO Hawkwatch Manager Step Wilson who will discuss the work of this amazing volunteer-based organization. Remember to bring binoculars, if you have them.
