Forest Service seeks volunteers for annual count of bald eagles

The U. S. Forest Service is looking for volunteers to participate in an annual mid-winter bald eagle count from 9 a.m. to noon on Jan. 8, according to a statement released this week.

The count is part of the National Midwinter Bald Eagle Survey that will be used to generate an estimate of bald eagle populations across the United States, according to the statement.

There are 26 stations located around the Lake Tahoe Basin that the Forest Service would like to fill as soon as possible.

Participants must contact Rena Escobedo at (530) 543-2733 or no later than Monday to volunteer.
