Volunteer helps visitors at Howard Miller Eagle Watch Station

Eagle Watcher Elena directs visitors to viewing sites from Howard Miller Park

Would you like to be an Eagle Watcher volunteer? The signup period for the Skagit Eagle Watchers Volunteer Stewardship Program is now open. Volunteers will attend 2 days of training, then commit to working 3 winter weekend shifts along the Skagit River. At viewing stations between Rockport and Marblemount , volunteers answer questions and educate the public about eagle and salmon ecology, and use spotting scopes to allow visitors to get a close up view of wintering bald eagles. Volunteer applications are available at the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest website and at the Mt Baker Ranger Station in Sedro-Woolley.

Applications are due November 22 for the 2010-11 season.

For more information, call the Mt Baker Ranger District at (360)856-5700.
