HawkWatch – Citizen Science Training

By | | No Comments

Take your raptor watching to the next level as a participant in Bird Conservancy’s HawkWatch program!

Volunteers collect information about raptor migration, which is stored in an online database and contributes to the understanding of raptor movements across North America. Official counts start in March with volunteers stationed at Dinosaur Ridge in Morrison, CO.

This training includes a classroom session and field outing.

The classroom session will be the evening of Feb. 19 at the Dinosaur Ridge Discovery Center (17681 W Alameda Pkwy, Golden, CO), followed by a field trip on February 23, meeting at the Stegosaurus Lot at 8AM.

RSVP is required.
