Bald Eagle Watch Volunteer Training – FULL!
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm MST
THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY FULL. WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANYMORE VOLUNTEERS THIS YEAR. THANK YOU!
Bird Conservancy of the Rockies’ Bald Eagle Watch program was started in 1988 to monitor and help protect the Bald Eagle nest at Barr Lake State Park, northeast of Denver. Now, community scientists with the Bird Conservancy monitor eagle nests across the Front Range to provide information to biologists on the nesting success of the Colorado population.
What: Monitor and collect data on Bald Eagle nesting behavior and productivity. Report any disturbances that may impact nesting eagles. Data help wildlife managers and conservation groups ensure continued healthy populations of Bald Eagles.
When: February to July
Where: Colorado (statewide, but primarily on the front range)
Who: Anyone who can monitor designated nest(s) weekly for a minimum of one hour, fill out a data sheet and enter into an online reporting system; can drive to nest site; enjoys monitoring either alone or with another person; and has a spotting scope or binoculars
Training: Training, via ZOOM, will be held during the day on January 21, 2023. There will be two sessions. The first session is from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. and is for new volunteers. The second session is from 1 p.m. – 3 p.m. and is for anybody that would like more information on the program
To sign up: Please e-mail Meredith McBurney, Volunteer Coordinator, to register for training. You must complete the training in order to participate.
