    Doe Mountain Recreation Area in Mountain City, TN is starting our first official Hawk Migration Association of North American hawk watch this month. We are looking for volunteers to help count migratory raptors from Sept 9th - Sept 30th.

    Preferred volunteers should have previous hawk watching experience or the ability to identify most of the raptors that migrate through Southern Appalachia (10+ species). Applicants with minimal hawk watching or ID experience can still be accepted but willingness to learn is necessary. Each day will last from 9 am to 5 pm. We ask that volunteers stay for a minimum of 2 hours during any one day of hawk watching. Volunteers will be given a free 30-minute offroad ride to the count site in a side-by-side.

    The count site is at Kettlefoot fire tower, which has incredible views of the surrounding area. The fire tower is not very large, so applicants should be comfortable with heights and small spaces. Nearby are Boone, NC; Elizabethton, TN; Bristol, TN; and Damascus, VA which offer outdoor scenery, activities, shopping, and food. Housing and food are not provided.

    If interested, please contact Shawn Lindsey at dmra_ED@johnsoncountytn.gov and Adrianna Nelson at nelsonam2@appstate.edu. Please reach out with any questions.
