BLM seeking volunteers for raptor study

The Bureau of Land Management, Utah is seeking volunteers to help conduct the annual Raptor Inventory Nest Survey (RINS) this spring in eastern Utah. Field training by RINS personnel will be provided for all volunteers,

RINS offers a unique opportunity for volunteers to become involved as “citizen scientists“ in a long-term raptor nest monitoring project. The RINS organization collects and manages vital data regarding the nesting ecology of eagles, falcons, hawks, osprey and owls

To be a RINS volunteer, no science credentials are needed. Those interested in participating in the project do not need to know how to discover a nest or identify a raptor; complete training is provided.

“The requirements are that you enjoy Utah’s outdoors and a desire to help the magnificent birds of prey,” BLM officials said. “It is recommended that you own a pair of binoculars, a GPS unit, and have an e-mail address.”

Volunteers must be willing to commit to monitor an assigned area two field days per month from March through July.
The spring workshop will be in Moab on February 3, 2014.
For more information visit: www.rins.org or call, 801-554-0807.

Volunteers may also send an email to: info@rins.org.
