SALT LAKE CITY — The Bureau of Land Management is seeking volunteers to help conduct the annual Raptor Inventory Nest Survey this spring in northern Utah.
The survey offers an opportunity for volunteers to become involved as "citizen scientists" in a long-term raptor nest monitoring project. The requirements are that volunteers enjoy Utah's outdoors, particularly the western desert, have a desire to help birds of prey and attend one training session.
The RINS organization collects and manages vital data regarding the ecology of eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls.
Those interested in volunteering do not need previous experience or science credentials. It is recommended that volunteers own a pair of binoculars, a GPS unit, and have an email address. The time commitment involves two field days per month from March through July to effectively monitor an assigned area.
