Thousands of visitors also come to Hawk Ridge during the fall to witness the phenomenon. Volunteers are needed during the Fall migration to assist at the main overlook. The only requirement is a minimum volunteer commitment of 24 hours between September 1 – November 1. Info/registration: e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org, or call (218) 428-6209.
