Partnership to Protect Waggoner's Gap

Partnership to Protect Waggoner's Gap

The Kittatinny Ridge is one of Pennsylvania’s most prominent natural features, forming the eastern-most edge of the “ridge and valley” region; a forested series of folds in the earth’s crust that uniquely define the landscape of south east Pennsylvania. It is known locally as Blue Mountain. Waggoner's Gap is a crucial piece of land on the migration path of several hawk species, and is considered to be a globally important migration point for over 150 bird species annually. The Kittatinny Ridge Project, started in 2001, is a collaborative effort of local, regional, and state organizations and agencies to focus public attention on the importance of Blue Mountain and the Kittatinny Ridge; and to help foster good stewardship of the Ridge for future generations. It is through these efforts that Waggoner’s Gap became a priority project. This acquisition preserved 106 critical acres located between the PA Audubon’s Hawk Viewing Area and the Reineman Wildlife Sanctuary. Waggoner’s Gap is now a larger part of Pennsylvania Audubon’s hawk counting and bird viewing area.
