RINS offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to become involved as “citizen scientists“ in a long-term raptor nest monitoring project. The RINS organization collects and manages vital data regarding the nesting ecology of eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls
Those interested in becoming volunteers do not need previous experience, or science credentials, according to the news release.
“The requirements are that you enjoy Utah’s outdoors and a desire to help the magnificent birds of prey,” BLM officials said. “It is recommended that you own a pair of binoculars, a GPS unit, and have an e-mail address.”
Volunteers must be willing to commit to monitor an assigned area two field days per month from March through July.
