Hawk in flight over Bay.

Join GGRO director Allen Fish for a 3-hour raptor workshop on the Pacific Coast’s best raptor-spotting spot. Come learn how to tell soaring hawks from accipiters and falcons. And how to spot unique species behaviors as well as tell-tale field marks. Come learn a whole new vocabulary of geeky bird words, like juv, morph, flappy, stilling, lift, coverts, dihedral, kettle, wing window, and subterminal. Find out how GGRO volunteers track the migration through annual counts, banding and satellite studies. Varied weather. BYO lunch and binoculars if you have them (if not, we’ll have a few pairs to loan).

Please note: Park Academy classes are meant as a special perk for volunteers, members, and employees. If you do not work for the Golden Gate National Parks, are not a member, or have not volunteered with us in the past year, a donation is encouraged. Volunteer or become a member today!
