As of today, there are still about 20 volunteer spots available for this winter’s eagle watching season. An application is available here at the Mt Baker Snoqualmie National Forest website. Turn in your application by November 25th if you would like to join us.
If you are selected to participate in the program, you will attend 2 days of training in bald eagle ecology, identification and management issues related to the winter Skagit River bald eagle population. The training will be held in Rockport on December 5 and 6. At the completion of training you will have an opportunity to sign up for three six-hour shifts as an educator at one of the eagle watching sites on the Skagit River. Volunteers will be stationed at the 3 sites between Marblemount and Rockport each weekend from December 26 to January 31.
