Field trips rule

Fyke Field Trips

Please Note: We ask that you register with the leader as a convenience in planning all our field trips.

September to November

State Line Hawk Watch

Meet at the State Line lookout in Alpine. This site has easy access and park facilities. Here is a chance to look down at migrating hawks. From September through early November, volunteer observers record the migration of raptors from the lookout point at State Line Lookout, from 9 AM to 4 PM, volunteer availability and weather conditions permitting..

September to November

Mount Peter Hawk Watch

The Mount Peter Hawk Watch, begun by the Fyke Nature Association in 1958, will celebrate its 60th consecutive fall count this fall, and hopefully the migrant raptors will join us. Although you canít call down to the Valley View Inn for a beer, as Stiles claimed to have done during those early days, you can enjoy some homemade ice cream from the local Creamery. The watch runs from September 1 through November 15 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, weather permitting. Weíre located above the Creamery at the top of 17A between Greenwood Lake and Warwick, NY. Visitors are more than welcome.

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
