Eagle Watch Volunteer Training Day
December 2, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Join us at the Upper Delaware Visitor Center for an overview of our volunteer Eagle Watch program followed by visits to actual monitoring sites. The winter Eagle Watch program runs through January and February, weekends only. Volunteers cover morning or afternoon shifts.
Main monitoring areas are Mongaup Reservoir and the Delaware River at Minisink Falls and the Zane Grey boat launch at Lackawaxen. Volunteers are also needed to help staff our field office on weekends. On site, volunteers collect data on wintering eagles and resident pairs. They educate the public in “Eagle Etiquette” and on how to have the best eagle watching experience. Volunteers are also needed to help staff booths, do workshops, and participate in other eagle-related events.
New volunteers will meet at the Upper Delaware Visitor Center at 9am. Then, new and existing volunteers will gather next door at the Inn at Lackawaxen at from 10am-12pm. From 12pm-1pm, attendees will visit the eagle viewing areas.
