Becoming a community scientist is really easy and fun!

Currently Friends of Griffith Park is gearing up for the 2019 Raptor Study. Information collected helps us understand how hawks and owls help keep rodent populations in check and how we can all improve the environment for raptor species as we gain more insight into these species.

Last year’s study article and results can be accessed here…
This year we’re hoping to make even more discoveries about raptors nesting in the Griffith Park vicinity.

If you’re interested in becoming one of the raptor nest volunteer observers, please send us the following:
RSVP to one of the TWO workshops (Feb. 3 or Feb. 9)
Indicate if you want the same nest as last season (if you were a previous volunteer).
If you’re aware of a nest in your neighborhood, and would like to either observe or pass along this information for a volunteer to observe, please send info. to
Fill out the attached volunteer survey with any preferences (send it along with the RSVP to Courtney).
Any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out!
There will be some volunteer forms at the events as well.

Thanks for your interest and thanks for participating!
