• 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 the Upper Delaware Visitor Center 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.
Please dress warmly – waterproof boots, hats and gloves.
