As a new member of the Texas Master Naturalist in fall of 2005, I came across the HWI website. I realized they did hawkwatches at the Texas coast. I was so impressed with their mission and goals, that every year since then our Alamo Area Chapter of the TMN approves an activity to go learn and assist the counters. It is so popular with our volunteers that many stay for 2 - 3 days, learning and assisting the official counters. When they return to San Antonio with stories of seeing over 20,000 raptors at one time, that only inspires more members to understand the importance of protecting this species and their habitats.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Purchase more land along the raptor migration corridors to protect or restore for these magnificent species.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
About once a year
