Volunteers Needed to Count Bald Eagles
Release Date: Mar 9, 2011

San Bernardino, Calif., March 9, 2011 - Volunteers are needed to help the Forest Service count bald eagles in the San Bernardino National Forest’s 32nd annual winter bald eagle count in
the San Bernardino and San Jacinto Mountains on March 12.

Concurrent Bald Eagle counts are held at Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Silverwood, and Lake Hemet. This year we have added Lake Perris State Park Recreation Area. Volunteers are stationed at vantage points around the lakes, where they map and note any eagle observations during a 1-hour period on the last count of the season this Saturday, March 12. Through this method, the Forest Service has acquired information about areas eagles use and fluctuations in population numbers, said wildlife biologist Marc Stamer. There’s no experience needed for volunteers and this is a wonderful opportunity to catch a glimpse of our breath-taking national symbol.

One remain eagle count for this winter is scheduled for the March 12. Mark your calendars now. No experience needed. Volunteers should dress warmly and bring binoculars and a watch.
  • Big Bear Lake area volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Big Bear Discovery Center on North Shore Drive. Contact Marc Stamer at 909-382-2828 for more information.
  • Lake Arrowhead volunteers will meet at 8:00 a.m. at the Sky Forest Ranger Station. Contact Marc Stamer, Wildlife Biologist, at 909-382-2828 for more information.

  • Lake Hemet volunteers should plan on meeting at the Lake Hemet Grocery Store at 8:30 a.m. for instructions. Contact Ann Poopatanapong at 909-382-2935 for more information.
  • Lake Perris State Park volunteers should contact the park office for information at 951-940-5600, and plan to meet at the Lake Perris Regional Indian Museum.
