Hawk Watch Volunteer Resources

All Hawk Watch volunteers must have a signed DFO liability waiver on file prior to the start of the season. If you have participated in a DFO field trip in the past couple of years, you should already have one. If you have never created an account on the DFO website, please do so before continuing.
