On the lookout for hawks passing by


Recruiting new banding and hawkwatch volunteers for the 2020 migration season!

Every autumn, the Golden Gate has more hawks, kites, eagles, falcons, vultures, ospreys, and harriers overhead than can be seen anywhere else in the Pacific States. GGRO volunteers have worked for more than three decades to track the populations of these birds of prey during fall migration.

Attend one of our recruitment meetings in the Marin Headlands to get an overview of the GGRO and what being a GGRO volunteer entails, talk to a current volunteer, and meet with the staff. You will also have the opportunity to pick up an application packet. These meetings are the best way to decide if working with us is right for you! We will host four recruitment meetings at the following dates and times to accomodate scheduling conflicts:

CANCELED: Saturday March 14; 10 am–noon (session 1)

CANCELED: Wednesday March 18; 7–9pm (session 2)

Saturday May 2; 10 am–noon (session 3)

Thursday May 7; 7–9pm (session 4)

You only need to attend one of the recruitment meetings listed above. 

Essential Volunteer Obligations
Volunteers must be able to commit to one regular field day in the Marin Headlands every two weeks from mid-August through early December. All training is provided and occurs in July and early August.
