DELAWARE HIGHLANDS CONSERVANCY ANNOUNCES EAGLE WATCH VOLUNTEER TRAINING DAY DECEMBER 2


The Delaware Highlands Conservancy announces an Eagle Watch Volunteer Training Day on December 2, from 9:00am-1pm in Lackawaxen, PA. New volunteers will meet at the Upper Delaware Visitor Center (176 Scenic Drive, Lackawaxen) 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 observation areas.

Take advantage of a wonderful opportunity to learn more about our magnificent national bird, help protect eagles in their habitat, and assist in educating the public about sharing our region with eagles.

Volunteers are trained to monitor and collect data about the large population of eagles that migrate to this region every winter. Volunteers also learn how to help the thousands of people who want to view the eagles in the safest and least intrusive manner, and share “Eagle Etiquette” tips.

Volunteers are also needed to help staff the Visitor Center on weekends. Interact with like-minded eagle enthusiasts, without needing to be out in the cold!

Binoculars, spotting scopes, training manuals, data forms, and hand warmers are provided by the Conservancy. The winter Eagle Watch program runs through January and February, weekends only. Volunteers may cover morning or afternoon shifts. The main monitoring areas are the Mongaup Reservoir and the Delaware River at Minisink Falls and the Zane Grey boat launch at Lackawaxen.

Trained eagle volunteers are also needed throughout the year to help staff booths, participate in workshops, and be a part of other eagle-related Conservancy events.

Advance registration for the Training Day is required. Send an email to info@delawarehighlands.org, or call 570-226-3164 or 845-583-1010. For more information on this training day and other upcoming eagle events, visit www.DelawareHighlands.org. It is highly recommended that all new volunteers attend the training day. Please dress warmly – waterproof boots, hats and gloves. If you cannot attend, please contact us to make alternate arrangements. Volunteers should be able to withstand cold temperatures and enjoy interacting with the public.

The Conservancy’s Eagle Watch program is supported in part by grant funding from the American Eagle Foundation; Orange and Rockland; Sullivan County; the Community Foundation of Orange and Sullivan; and The Philadelphia Foundation.
