Fyke Field Trips

Please Note: We ask that you register with the leader as a convenience in planning all our field trips.

September to November

State Line Hawk Watch

Meet at the State Line lookout in Alpine. This site has easy access and park facilities. Here is a chance to look down at migrating hawks. From September through early November, volunteer observers record the migration of raptors from the lookout point at State Line Lookout, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., volunteer availability and weather conditions permitting.

September to November

Mt. Peter Hawk Watch

Mount Peter Hawk Watch: September 1 to November 15, 2018 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
Get under the Atlantic Flyway this fall and witness the southbound spectacle of raptors and songbirds. Mount Peter has reserved a spot just for you with views of the Warwick Valley clear out to the Kittatinny Mountains and access to the best homemade ice cream in the Northeast. Best times: mid-September for Broad-wings, Osprey and Bald Eagles; or mid-October - November for Red-tails and Red-shoulders and, with luck, a Golden Eagle. The watch is located above the Creamery at the top of 17A between Greenwood Lake and Warwick, NY.

NPC Field Trips

The Nature Program Cooperative (NPC) is a collaboration between over a dozen local organizations like Fyke that provide quality nature programs. Throughout the year, NPC members host activities and programs to which all group members are invited. When applicable, member discounts will apply to NPC partner members and supporters. For example, if Tenafly Nature Center hosts an event, members of all other NPC groups pay TNCís member rate. For more details, please see the NPC website at
