Join Jesse Pope for this 6-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 registration or $20 for Bridge Club members.

 

Adult Field Courses

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, scientists and 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. To register, and for more information, email judi@grandfather.com.

Each adult field course counts as six hours toward the N.C. Environmental Educator Certification Criteria II, with the exception of “Salamanders of Grandfather,” which counts as seven.
