Post by hikeaz » Sep 29 2017 10:14 am

VERMILION CLIFFS, Ariz. – California Condors will be released to the wild in the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in northern Arizona at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 30. The public is welcome to observe the release from a viewing area where spotting scopes will be set up and project personnel will be available to answer questions.

The release coincides with National Public Lands Day, the nation’s largest hands-on volunteer effort to improve and enhance America’s public lands. National Public Lands Day involves the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and other federal agencies, along with state and local governments and private groups.

@hikeaz I attended one of these releases several years ago. It really was a sight to see. Great time of year to be up there. Definitely bring binoculars or scope. You're too far away to see much with the naked eye.
