Peregrine Falcon restoration in Acadia National Park and Highlights of the Cadillac Mountain Hawk Watch Speaker: Ranger Patrick Kark
May 12 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
As one of the first locations chosen to recover
peregrine falcons, Acadia National Park has a
storied history in the recovery of peregrine falcons.
Join Ranger Patrick Kark as he discusses the success of
the recovery project within the park and the reach
Acadia’s falcons have had far outside Acadia’s borders. Acadia also hosts the
Cadillac Mountain Hawkwatch which will be entering its 27th counting
season in 2021. Learn more about the experience of hawkwatch on the highest
mountain on the eastern seaboard and how Cadillac fits into the larger network
of hawk migration monitoring sites across the continent.
Ranger Patrick Kark came to Maine in 2014 as Acadia’s raptor intern. He has
worked seven seasons at the park as an ornithology park ranger and is currently
working as a visual information specialist for the park.
