Volunteers Needed to Count Bald Eagles
Date: Dec 15, 2010

San Bernardino, Calif., December 15, 2010 - Volunteers are needed to help the Forest Service count bald eagles in the San Bernardino National Forest’s 32nd annual winter bald eagle counts in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains on Dec. 18, Jan. 8, Feb. 12, and March 12.

Concurrent Bald Eagle counts are held at Big Bear Lake, Baldwin Lake, Little Green Valley Lake, Lake Gregory, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Silverwood, and Lake Hemet. This year we have added Lake Perris State Park Recreation Area. Volunteers will be stationed at vantage points around the lakes, where they map and note any eagle observations during a 1-hour period on the Saturday mornings listed above. Observations will be repeated monthly for simultaneous 1-hour census/mapping efforts December through March.

“Through this method, the Forest Service has acquired information about areas eagles use and fluctuations in population numbers,”said wildlife biologist Marc Stamer. “There is no experience needed for volunteers and this is a wonderful opportunity to catch a glimpse of our breath-taking national symbol.”

Eagle counts for this winter have been scheduled for the following Saturday mornings: December 18, January 8, February 12, and March 12. Mark your calendars now.

No experience needed. Volunteers should dress warmly and bring binoculars and a watch.
