Join Jesse Pope, executive director of the Grandfather Mountain Stewardship Foundation, for this six-hour course on raptor migration. In 2015,  more than 11,000 raptors were observed in September as they soared over Grandfather Mountain on their annual migration south. Learn why they do this – and become an official “watcher” yourself.

This Adult Field Course is limited to 12 participants and costs $40 for general admission, $20 for Bridge Club members. To register, or for more information, email judi@grandfather.com, or call (828) 733-2013.

Grandfather Mountain’s Adult Field Courses invite participants to examine specific aspects of the park ecosystem through just the right combination of fun field excursions and classroom presentations. Our course leaders are experts in their fields and include professors, naturalists and scientists, as well as acclaimed photographers, writers, historians and artists. Most courses run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and lunch will be eaten in the field. Please bring your own lunch. Rates do not include taxes.
