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.
