Location: Hawk Mtn. Rd., at path to north lookout

Marker Text: Founded in 1934 by Rosalie Edge, it is the world’s first refuge for birds of prey. It had been a popular shooting site because of its location on a major hawk migration corridor and a 1929 bounty placed on northern goshawks. Through the work of its founder and early supporters, such as Richard Pough, it became a raptor conservation research, education, and training facility and a hawk-watching destination for bird and nature lovers globally.
