Hawkfest at Lake Erie Metro Park

  • Sep 21, 2013 · 9:45 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

See hawks in the sky and meet a few at Lake Erie Metropark’s 24th Annual Hawkfest, a two-day celebration of the annual fall migration of birds of prey – hawks, eagles, falcons and vultures. Members of Michigan Falconry Club will be on hand with their birds. It would be a great opportunity to get some birds photos up close and personal!!

The Hawkfest is September 21 & 22, 2013. I'm planning this meet up for Saturday, September 21st. I would like to arrive early 9:30. We can carpool if anyone is interested. The drive is about 1 hour on i75 south from Rochester. We can meet along i75. Please let me know what location would be better for you.

If you are to carpool please take into consideration the high gas prices and share gas expenses as well as park entrance fee if you don't already have a pass.

There is a park entrance fee per day or annual. Many of you might have purchased already an annual ticket to Michigan Metro parks, but for those of you who have not here are the prices:

Annual $25     |      Daily $5    |    Seniors(62+) $12

*Additional details on carpool option and meeting place to come.

    I think the senior fees nowadays are a bit higher:

    Huron-Clinton Metroparks
    ($25 and $15, or $5 daily). They include 13 parks.
    Lake Erie, Kensington, and Stony Creek are among them.
    I purchased a the State parks with my tab renewal, but it's useless for county parks.
    Soon there'll be additional annual fees to enter our driveways at home, plus property taxes of course!

    Too soon for me to know if I can make it.

    Make sure to bring umbrella, Ziploc bag or other bag to cover camera in case it rains, jacket, etc keep some layers on since the weather has been so crazy. Oh and shoes, flip flops would not be good for this event.
