If you are interested in peregrines, be sure to stop by the Precipice Trail parking area most days from July 1 through mid-August (ending date varies each year). Weather permitting, a ranger or volunteer will be available with viewing scopes for watching peregrine falcons breeding (or attempting to breed) on Champlain Mountain. Stop by anytime between 9 a.m. and noon.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or intern who works with the Peregrine Watch program, check out the Acadia volunteer information on this website. The raptor interns usually start their season in mid-May and assist with the Peregrine Watch and HawkWatch programs through mid-October. If you are interested, contact the Gorham Mountain District Supervisory Ranger for more details.
