Chelan Ridge Migration Festival 2017

September 15-16-17

Join the Methow Valley Ranger District, HawkWatch International, and North Central Washington Audubon Society this fall for the 9th annual Chelan Ridge Hawk Migration Festival. This free family event combines activities in Pateros, WA and migration trips to the Chelan Ridge migration site to learn about and celebrate raptors as they journey to winter territories.

You will get to visit vendors, see raptor demonstrations, listen to live music, and take a trip to the spectacular Chelan Ridge raptor migration site. During the day, shuttles will run from Pateros to Chelan Ridge where visitors can see raptors such as Cooper’s Hawk up close when they are banded and released.
