Join the North Cascades Audubon Society and David Johnson from the Global Owl Project as he reveals the unusual rescue efforts using artificial burrows to bring back the burrowing owls at the Umatilla Army Depot in Oregon.
Johnson will describe what he has learned during this 11-year project and will discuss the demographics, mate selection, dispersal, migration patterns, and other facets of the ecology of the Western burrowing owl. The burrowing owl is known to live in open grassland/shrub steppe areas of the Americas and currently there are 22 recognized subspecies.
Registration is free but required. Participants will receive an email confirmation with the Zoom login info once they sign up.
The Whatcom Museum acknowledges that we gather on the traditional territory of the Lhaq’temish – Lummi People – and the Nuxwsá7aq – Nooksack People – who have lived in the Coast Salish region from time immemorial. The Museum honors our relationship with all of our Coast Salish neighbors and our shared responsibilities to their homeland where we all reside today.
