HAWLEY, PA — The Delaware Highlands Conservancy (DHC) will hold its winter eagle watch volunteer training from 10 a.m. to 12 noon on Saturday, December 9 at the Settlers Inn.
Following the in-person training session, volunteers will receive manuals and other materials for the winter season.
After that, volunteers can go on self-guided tours to the Van Scott Nature Reserve in Beach Lake and the eagle observation areas throughout the river valley.
The DHC’s winter eagle watch program runs through January and February on weekends only. Volunteers cover morning or afternoon shifts at the eagle observation areas. The main monitoring areas are at the Mongaup Reservoir and on the Delaware River at Minisink Falls and the Zane Grey boat launch at Lackawaxen. On site, volunteers collect data on wintering eagles and resident pairs. They educate the public, help staff booths, do workshops and participate in other eagle-related events.
Register online at www.DelawareHighlands.org/events or call 570/226-3164 ext. 2.
For those not able to attend the training on December 9 but are still interested in volunteering, email Rachel Morrow at the DHC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
