The event will run from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM and is intended for those interested in volunteering with Bald Eagle Watch.

Bald Eagle Watch began at Barr Lake State Park in 1988, with the purpose of monitoring and protecting the pair of eagles that made Barr Lake their home. Since then the program has grown along with Colorado’s Bald Eagle population, and now monitors more than 50 eagle nests across the state. As the eagle population continues to grow, so does their need for volunteers.

Program at-a-glance:

  • What: Monitor and collect data on Bald Eagle nesting behavior and productivity. Report any disturbances that may impact nesting eagles. Data help wildlife managers and conservation groups ensure continued healthy populations of Bald Eagles.
  • When: February to July
  • Where: Colorado’s Front Range, from Denver to Fort Collins
  • Who: Anyone who can monitor designated nest(s) weekly for a minimum of one hour, fill out a data sheet and enter into an online reporting system; can drive to nest site; enjoys monitoring either alone or with another person; and has a spotting scope or binoculars
  • Training: January 21, 2017 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. at Bird Conservancy’s Old Stone House Environmental Learning Center in Brighton, Colorado
