BLM Pinedale seeks volunteers for Bald Eagle survey

PINEDALE, Wyoming - The Bureau of Land Management Pinedale Field Office is seeking volunteers to assist with a national mid-winter bald eagle survey on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2023.

Volunteers should call the Pinedale BLM Field Office by Thursday, Jan. 5, 2023 to be assigned survey routes along public roads in Sublette County, Wyoming, and receive instructions on survey methods and eagle identification.  Two-person observation teams are needed so that one person can safely drive while the other observes and documents eagles.

Since 1979, federal and state agencies as well as volunteers from the public have counted bald eagles throughout the U.S. every January.  By monitoring and estimating national and regional count trends, an index of the total winter bald eagle population in the lower 48 states has been established.

For more information, please contact Theresa Gulbrandson at 307-367-5359.
