RINS Workshops

RINS workshops are held each year prior to the beginning of the field season to provide training, updates, and pertinent information for new and returning volunteers to successfully master the skills involved in monitoring nesting raptors.

Attending one Spring Workshop is mandatory for both new volunteers and all returning volunteers. Attending the Field Training Workshop is required for all new volunteers, and highly recommended for first and second year volunteers. All returning volunteers are welcome to attend the Field Training Workshop anytime.

The 2018 RINS Workshops will be held on the following dates and locations:

Moab Spring Workshop – January 30, 2018

Monticello Spring Workshop – January 31, 2018

Cedar City Spring Workshop – February 7, 2018

Salt Lake Spring Workshop I – February 24, 2018

Salt Lake Spring Workshop II – March 3, 2018

Salt Lake Field Training Workshop March 10, 2018
This workshop is required for new volunteers. You will receive your assignment and Quad Notebook and receive additional hands-on-training to accomplish the fieldwork RINS volunteers perform. This workshop is great for 2nd year volunteers as well to brush up on their fieldwork skills. All returning RINS volunteers are invited to attend ANYTIME to brush up on your fieldwork skills and raptor ID skills. Plus you are great resources for our new volunteers.

    I am contacting you to mention that I have recorded a number of Goshawk nesting sites in an around the town of Heber and Strawberry reservoir 30 years ago. I would be interested to see if those nests have been impacted.
    I have forty years of falconry related nesting site location that includes all native species from Sharp Shinned hawks to Golden Eagles.
    I was a certified arborist and climbed thousands of trees and have taught dozens of people to climb them safely.
    I on occasion, have worked as a field biologist performing quantitative bird analyses for the U.S Air Force and in the private sector.
    If I can be of service, please do contact me.
    Thank you, Tom Stephan.
