Spring Equinox

  • Hawk Mountain Visitor Center 1700 Hawk Mountain Road Kempton, PA, 19529 United States

Welcome the spring season and get outdoors at our annual Spring Equinox Celebration. We invite visitors of all ages to come and welcome the warmer weather!

Trail fee applies if hiking on the trails.

Held on the Saturday closest to the equinox, the event will celebrate nature’s renewal with a variety of programs. Throughout the day, the Sanctuary will offer complimentary hot chocolate and bird-friendly coffee. Additionally, a volunteer naturalist will be available at the bird feeder windows to help identify the growing number of birds and small mammals. 

The live Raptors Up Close! program will start the day at 11 am, followed by a guided “Signs of Spring” nature walk at 12:30 for the first 20 visitors that sign up. From noon to 2 pm, children can participate in a kid’s nature craft. The day concludes with a second live raptor program at 2 pm.
