Audubon Volunteers Needed

Riverlands Environmental Demonstration Area, near Alton, IL, but actually
located on the Missouri side of the Mississippi, is a hot bed for Bald
Eagles during the winter months.   Many visitors go there on weekends to see
the eagles.  The Corps of Engineers would like to have their River Project
Office, located on the Missouri side, open on weekends to answer questions
from eagle watchers and to point these people to the best places for
observation.

Accordingly, the Corps is looking for interested volunteers who could be
have the office open for some hours on weekends during January and February.
The proposed hours are from 10 AM - 4 PM on both Saturdays and Sundays, but
volunteers need not work all 6 hrs of one shift nor do they need to be
present for both days on any weekend.   In fact, they will accept offers to
volunteer for only one day even for just a few hours if that is all that
some people can offer.  In addition to answering questions it is anticipated
that the volunteers will assist visitors in using the telescopes that will
be available in the office meeting room.   Training can be supplied for any
volunteer who does not know how to use a telescope.

The contact person for this work is Carol Ryan.   Her office is in the
museum on the Illinois side where she can be reached at 618-462-6979.
