Eagle Watch Volunteer Training with the Delaware Highlands Conservancy

Eagle Watch Volunteer Training with the Delaware Highlands Conservancy

Upper Delaware River Region, NY and PA – Join the Delaware Highlands Conservancy for winter 2023 Eagle Watch volunteer training on Saturday, December 10 from 10am-12pm at the Highlights Foundation Retreat Center in Boyds Mills, PA.

Following the in-person training session, volunteers will receive manuals and other materials for the winter season. Volunteers are then invited to visit the Van Scott Nature Reserve for a guided walk and then take a self-guided tour of the Eagle Observation Areas.

The Conservancy’s winter Eagle Watch program runs through January and February, weekends only. Volunteers cover morning or afternoon shifts at the Eagle Observation Areas located throughout the Upper Delaware River region.

Main monitoring areas are Mongaup Reservoir and the Delaware River at Minisink Falls and the Zane Grey boat launch at Lackawaxen. On site, volunteers collect data on wintering eagles and resident pairs. They educate the public in “Eagle Etiquette” and on how to have the best eagle watching experience. Volunteers are also needed to help staff booths, do workshops, and participate in other eagle-related events.

Those interested in attending are asked to register online at or call 570-226-3164 ext. 2. For those not able to attend the training on December 10 but still interested in becoming an Eagle Watch volunteer, please contact the Conservancy.

The Delaware Highlands Conservancy works in partnership with landowners and communities to protect the natural heritage and quality of life of the Upper Delaware River region. For more information, call 570-226-3164/845-583-1010 or visit
