Direct Support


Mackinac Straits Raptor Watch conducts scientific studies of hawks and owls migrating through this region of northern Michigan and educates the public about the birds and their migration. We count hawks and survey owls in the both spring and fall, recording and reporting the data for free professional and public access.  Because of this national significance and the region’s significant visitation by tourists, it is also an ideal place to educate the general public about this natural resource.
