Join the Methow Valley Ranger District, North Central Washington Audubon Society, and HawkWatch International this fall for the third annual Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival! This family event combines free activities in Pateros with trips to the Chelan Ridge site to learn about and celebrate raptors as they journey to winter territories. Shop vendors, get face-to-face with owls and hawks, and take a field trip to the spectacular Chelan Ridge Raptor Migration Site. The festival will have art projects for kids, hands-on activities, and raptor exhibits. Attendees can also go on birding field trips with experts to identify waterfowl and migrating songbirds while exploring along the Columbia River. During the day, shuttles will run from Pateros to Chelan Ridge where families, bird lovers, and learners of all ages will be able to see raptors like Sharp-shinned Hawks up close before they are banded and released.
