Thank you for your help with outreach and recruitment with last year’s Adopt an Eyrie program on the Rio Grande National Forest. Volunteers helped monitor several eyrie sites in the area and gathered important data for our resource managers. We are continuing the program this year and have started recruiting for several positions. I would greatly appreciate your help with recruitment and outreach again. Below are links to the websites where folks can get more information and sign up for this opportunity. https://fw.civicore.com/voc/index.php?section=opportunities&action=view2&fwID=20801 http://www.volunteer.gov Brinkley Messick
