Mount Peter Hawkwatch Begins

September 16-17, 2017 (Saturday - Sunday)

Mount Peter Hawkwatch Birdathon

The Mount Peter Hawk Watch will celebrate its 60th consecutive count this fall. To celebrate, we will conduct a birdathon at the lookout September 16 - 17 to raise money for our annual report that we distribute to all visitors and for maintenance of our data on Hawkcount.org. Fyke members are invited to help with the count or just to visit and give us your support. More details in the next newsletter. The watch begins September 1, 2017 and continues daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until November 15. Contact Judy Cinquina at judycinq@optonline.net to volunteer or for more information.

NPC Field Trips

The Nature Program Cooperative (NPC) is a collaboration between over a dozen local organizations like Fyke that provide quality nature programs. Throughout the year, NPC members host activities and programs to which all group members are invited. When applicable, member discounts will apply to NPC partner members and supporters. For example, if Tenafly Nature Center hosts an event, members of all other NPC groups pay TNCís member rate. For more details, please see the NPC website at www.natureprogam.org.
