UCW Monthly Meeting – March 6th, 2018 – 2 PM
Burrowing Owls in BC
A Local Conservation Grassroots Story
The Burrowing Owl is a charismatic, small grassland owl, that has now been classified as endangered in Canada since the 1980’s. Learn about why this owl is disappearing from the grasslands and the successful recovery efforts to re-introduce captive-raised owls back to the wild. They are the only owls that nest underground, and a network of artificial burrows are used extensively in BC to aid in their recovery.
The recovery initiative has gained national and international recognition, and BC is now considered a leader in Burrowing Owl recovery techniques.
Everyone is welcome – men, women, children…
