Progress and Rationale
Capital projects prepare us for the next generation
Invest in our assets
Hawk Mountain capital projects are designed to invest in the resources we already have. For example, work at the Common Room will expand and improve the first public facility on the Sanctuary, adding such necessary features insulation, ADA accessible entrance and expanded patio, safe school bus access, and modern technology, including high speed internet.
Meet the Mission
All work meets the Hawk Mountain mission: to conserve birds of prey worldwide by providing leadership in raptor conservation science and education, and by maintaining Hawk Mountain Sanctuary as a model observation, research and education facility. The completed Common Room project is key to helping the Sanctuary emerge as a global leader in raptor education.
Improve the Visitor Experience
Hawk Mountain is committed to serving its members, visitors and supporters and all plans are designed to improve their experience at the Sanctuary. Phase I, the Common Room, improves the experience for visiting groups, educators as well as anyone touched by our education programs, while the remaining three phases directly address visitor services.
