At the Lehigh Gap Nature Center, we believe that the work we are doing is important enough to share with our members, our community, and our fellow wildlife advocates. For this reason, we publish two regular journals–the Wildlife Activist and the American Hawkwatcher. We also have authored two handbooks–the Kittatinny Raptor Corridor Handbook and the Bake Oven Knob Hawk Count Protocol Guide.
Wildlife Activist (ISSN 0894-4660) is published three times per year and is the main publication and newsletter for the general membership. Along with the feature articles, each issue includes News from the Kittatinny Raptor Corridor Project, Wildlife Notes, and an extensive section called Wildlife Book Reviews.
American Hawkwatcher (ISSN 0748-8319) is a scientific journal reporting on the long term Bake Oven Knob Hawk Count research project. It also includes other articles and short field notes related to hawks in the Western Hemisphere. American Hawkwatcher is published annually in December or January.
This colorful book is now available. You can pick up a copy for free at the LGNC Osprey House or order one by mail.
Lehigh Gap Update
Lehigh Gap Update is published twice annually (Summer/Fall and Winter/Spring) for “Friends of the Lehigh Gap Wildlife Refuge.” The newsletter keeps “Friends” up to date on the progress of the Lehigh Gap Restoration Project and keeps them informed about events and activities at the Refuge. See the membership page to become a “Friend of the Refuge.”
The Kittatinny Raptor Corridor Handbook is an educational resource for schools in the Raptor Corridor area. It contains short bulletins arranged in loose-leaf format.
Bake Oven Knob Hawk Count Protocol Guide
This brochure describes in detail the techniques and methods used for our Bake Oven Knob Hawk Count. Across the country, many organizations rely on this guide as the basis for their hawk counts.
