Pinedale Field Office Seeks Volunteers for Bald Eagle Survey

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Pinedale Field Office (PFO) is seeking volunteers to conduct a midwinter bald eagle survey on Saturday, Jan. 14, 2012.

Every January since 1979, volunteers have counted bald eagles. 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.

A public meeting will be held on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. in the PFO Rendezvous Room at 1625 W. Pine in Pinedale, Wyo. Survey methodology and eagle identification will be discussed and survey routes assigned. Two-person observation teams are needed so that one person can safely drive while the other documents observed eagles.

For more information, please contact Josh Hemenway, PFO wildlife biologist, at 307-367-5322.

The BLM manages more than 245 million acres of public land, the most of any Federal agency. This land, known as the National System of Public Lands, is primarily located in 12 Western states, including Alaska. The BLM also administers 700 million acres of sub-surface mineral estate throughout the nation. The BLM's mission is to sustain the health, diversity, and productivity of America’s public lands for the use and enjoyment of present and future generations. In Fiscal Year 2015, the BLM generated $4.1 billion in receipts from activities occurring on public lands.
