Here are a few of the things going on in, or a short distance from, South Logan County in the coming days.
Starting on Thursday, Sept. 20 and continuing through Sunday, Sept. 23, at 10 a.m. each morning you can take part in a hawk watch on Mount Magazine. There is a second watch set for 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 22.
Many animals migrate southward over Mount Magazine in September. Join a park naturalist and other bird enthusiasts to watch from high cliffs of Cameron Bluff for birds of prey flying by, sometimes at eye level. Help identify and tally hawks, falcons, eagles and other migrating wildlife.
For each watch, meet at the third parking area on Cameron Bluff Overlook Drive — watch for a white park van. Admission is free.
