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.
