Winter Raptor Survey Orientation @ HawkWatch International Headquarters
Nov 13 @ 4:30 pm – Nov 13 @ 6:00 pm
Winter Raptor Survey Orientation @ HawkWatch International Headquarters

Citizen science volunteers will are needed to help us collect data on wintering raptor behaviors and habitat use. Volunteers will drive along established routes to monitor vast open country to both inventory raptors and to unlock the subtle mysteries of how they utilize the winter landscape. This will be our 5th consecutive season of collecting standardized data and scouting new routes for raptor presence throughout central and northern Utah. Project volunteers will get to see some arctic raptor species only seen here in the winter months (Rough-legged Hawks, Short-eared Owls, Bald Eagles, etc), and notate how they use the landscape.

If this sounds of interest, please join us for this mandatory Winter Raptor Survey orientation and learn more about the project. We require a minimum time requirement to drive your route 2-4 times per month, and we will provide necessary support.
