At Hawk Mountain, inclusiveness and equity is a priority. We believe conservation and outdoor recreation should be accessible to everyone and the Sanctuary welcomes anyone who is interested in learning more about and participating in these things. Over the next several weeks, Hawk Mountain will be hosting several events that are in line with our goal to promote inclusivity and as a part of our ongoing effort to make conservation more welcoming and accessible to everyone. The Sanctuary will host events celebrating Black Birders Week, Pride Month, Latino Conservation, and events that are ADA accessible.
