Events for Classes & Workshops

Volunteer Orientation: Bird Docent

Bird Docent volunteers assist in providing community outreach programs with HawkWatch International's education birds. Volunteers are taught how to handle our non-releasable education birds, learn about birds of prey and our various programs, and then take the birds out to community programs to teach about raptor ecology and conservation. We do request a time commitment of volunteers and ask that they assist with some general bird care duties. If you would like to become a Bird Docent volunteer for HawkWatch International, please attend this orientation where you will meet the birds and Nikki Wayment, HawkWatch International's Education and Community Outreach Director.

Since then she has worked to supply Salt Lake City with delicious delicacies and sweet treats. Participants will learn the basics of how to crumb coat and frost a cake as well as piping bag techniques.
