Irma's Birthday Celebration

Irma Broun with Birthday Hat

Celebrate the birthday of Hawk Mountain's first volunteer and original "Keeper of the Gate," Irma Broun (Penniman Kahn).  This pioneer conservationist assisted her husband and then-curator Maurice Broun in protecting birds of prey in the mid-1930's at the newly established Sanctuary.  Honor this remarkable woman by bringing in a birthday card for her and receive 1/2 off trail admission, or $10 off a new membership; Mountain Members will receive 15% off most items in the store. 

And be sure to take a picture with Irma in our Visitor Center and then share on Instagram or Twitter with #IRMA1934 to be registered in a prize drawing!
