Your EagleWatch team is hard at work to make sure we’re ready for a new season. We’re fortunate to have Dr. Judith Knapp and Rob LeBlanc returning as our EagleWatch Coordinators.
Recruiting for new volunteers is underway and we’re also renewing contact with experienced volunteers. If you are interested in joining our volunteers, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch. For information about being a volunteer go to https://www.squamishenvironment.ca/get-involved/volunteer/.
Our Annual Orientation and Training Session for experienced and new volunteers is scheduled for 11:00 AM – 3:00 PM, Sunday, October 27 at the Brackendale Art Gallery. We’ll be providing a light lunch. Come and find out what is new for our 24th Season and mingle with our new and experienced volunteers.
Our Opening Day Ceremony is set for 10:00 AM, Saturday, November 9 at our Eagle Run Dike location in Brackendale. We hope to have Squamish First Nation representatives take part to bless this event and welcome our wintering bald eagles for another season. Mayor Karen Elliott will be taking part along with our other honoured guests.
Saturday, November 9 will also be Opening Day for EagleWatch at Eagle Run Dike. Immediately following the opening ceremony, our volunteers will be ready with their scopes to greet visitors. Our hours this year will once again be 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM.
EagleWatch educational presentations and field trips are available for schools and community groups on a first-come, first-served basis. For bookings, contact Dr. Judith Knapp at email@example.com or call 604-898-2072.
