Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International

Bird Docent Orientation @ HawkWatch International

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International’s education birds. Volunteers learn how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about the birds and HawkWatch International’s mission and programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do have a time commitment for volunteers and ask they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, attend the orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HWI Education and Community Outreach Director.
