US Forest Service Needs Help Counting Bald Eagles

If you love the outdoors, nature and counting the US Forest Service has the job for you!

USFS Biologist Robin Eliason says the agency is asking for help to take part in their 40th annual eagle count.

"We're exceptionally proud the forest has continued to be habitat for bald eagles.Witnessing our national symbol in the wild is a profound experience, and we're glad it's within reach of millions of SoCal residents."

Volunteers are asked to watch for activity in nesting areas around Big Bear Lake, Lake Arrowhead, Lake Gregory, Lake Hemet, Lake Perris and Silverwood Lake.

The agency says no prior experience is necessary, just have some warm clothes, binoculars and an hour for each count.
