Hawk Ridge Mission
Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory protects birds of prey and other migratory birds in the Western Lake Superior Region through research, education and stewardship.




Hawk Ridge Vision
Based at a uniquely advantageous location overlooking the western tip of Lake Superior, the primary goals of the Hawk Ridge Bird Observatory are to study one of the greatest migrations of birds of prey in North America; to research the distribution, abundance and migratory pathways of birds in the Western Great Lakes; to educate people about bird conservation; and to serve as stewards of the Hawk Ridge Nature Reserve, the first designated Important Bird Area within Minnesota.
