The Golden Gate Raptor Observatory (GGRO) uses long-term volunteer-powered research programs to track the fall migration of raptors through the Marin Headlands. We recruit for new volunteers in spring, with training for new volunteers offered only once a year in July and August, for participation in either the Hawkwatch or Banding program.

We recruit hawkwatchers annually and banders every other year. We will be recruiting both hawkwatchers and banders for the 2020 season. 

All GGRO volunteers commit to one regular, full field day in the Marin Headlands every two weeks (i.e. every other Tuesday, every other Sunday, etc.) during our sixteen week monitoring period, mid-August to December. All training is provided. Hawkwatchers must be 18 years old or have an adult guardian hawkwatching with them; banders must be 18.

Recruitment meeting dates and details for spring 2020 can be found in the events section below.
