Best times: mid-September for Broad-wings, Osprey and Bald Eagles; or mid-October - November for Red-tails and Red-shoulders and, with luck, a Golden Eagle. The watch is located above the Creamery at the top of 17A between Greenwood Lake and Warwick, NY. Directions to the Mount Peter Hawkwatch

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.
