If you enjoy birding but are not quite certain your eyes are up for the challenge of counting hawks high in the air, perhaps this position may be more appealing! Our counters would love to chat with the many visitors who stop by the counting site but they need to keep their eyes on the sky to keep an accurate count. This position alleviates this dilemma. Just join the Hawk Watch folks on any count day, ask some questions to learn about their survey methods, and then provide this information to visitors as they stop by to chat. It is the best of both worlds – the counters will keep you up to date on new sightings, you will learn more then you thought possible about hawk migration, and you will have a chance to interact with visitors from all over the world!
Our Grand Opening for our new visitor center will be in 2019. For now this site is closed to the public. In the meantime, the refuge headquarters is located at 9311 Groh Road, Grosse Ile, MI 48138.
