Birds will be the focus of a series of programs set for October at the Endless Mountains Nature Center (EMNC) on Vosburg Road in Washington Township. There will be programs for all ages and visitors can interact with the new hands-on exhibits in the lodge.
• The series begins with a Birds-of-Prey Identification Workshop Oct. 17, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., followed the next day by a field trip to Hawk Mountain Sanctuary in Kempton, Berks County.
There is no fee for EMNC stewards and for others the fee is $5.
• On Oct. 18, participants can visit one of the "hottest hawk migration spots" on the east coast to see "The Greatest Show Above the Earth." Details will be mailed to registrants. The entrance fee to Hawk Mountain is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $3 for children 6-12 years. EMNC stewards are free through a reciprocal program with Hawk Mountain Sanctuary.
• On Oct. 19, the center will host a program on birds of prey for home-schooled students, from 9:30 a.m. to noon.
The fee for the program is $6 per student, and $3 per parent.
