After the Thanksgiving and Black Friday madness settles down, celebrate Small Business Saturday at the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary Holiday Open House November 26 in the Sanctuary Visitor Center from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Raptors Up Close Program bookends the event with programs offered at 11a.m. and 2 p.m. Complimentary hot chocolate and bird-friendly coffee samples will be available throughout the event, and children's crafts and activities will be held in the Visitor Center Gallery from 12-2 p.m.
In spirit of Small Business Saturday, anyone who purchases a membership that day will receive 3 free months and a complimentary gift. The Mountain Raffle will also come to a close with the official drawing for each item at 3 p.m. There is still time to enter the raffle, which can be done by calling the Sanctuary at 610-756-6961.
In addition to the fun activities happening inside, the Autumn Migration Hawkwatch continues. Counters will still be stationed at North Lookout conducting the count, so visitors are encouraged to get out, hike, and enjoy the crisp outdoors before the season's end. Trail fees are $9 for adults, $7 for seniors, and $5 for children 6 and up.
The 2,500-acre Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Berks County is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey and is open to the public year-round by trail-fee or membership, which in turn supports the nonprofit organization’s raptor conservation mission and local-to-global research, training, and education programs.For more information on programs, initiatives and upcoming events, visit the Hawk Mountain Sanctuary or call 610-756-6961.
