Eagle Watcher Volunteers on training day near the Marblemount Fish Hatchery.

Eagle Watcher Volunteers on training day 2011 on the Cascade River near Marblemount Fish Hatchery.

Do you like spending time outdoors and meeting new people? Would you like to learn more about bald eagles, salmon, the Skagit River and the North Cascades? Do you enjoy winter birding, and sharing what you have learned with others? The Forest Service is looking for adult volunteers for our winter volunteer stewardship program. Volunteers staff information tents near eagle viewing areas on the Skagit River, and we get to look at eagles through spotting scopes and binoculars all day. Volunteers can also give nature walks or even formal programs if they have the desire to do so. You don’t have to know anything about eagles, we will teach you.  All you need is a friendly attitude and the desire to talk with the public. This program has been going for 21 years and we would love to see some new faces this year. Volunteer solo or with a friend or relative. The application and more information can be found using the tabs above. I will be in the office beginning November 10 and can be reached at (360)854-2630 if you have more questions.
