Upcoming trip: Owling in the Laramie Range

Owls are one of the most celebrated yet least understood groups of birds. Despite a handful of chance encounters over the years, relatively little is known of owl abundance and diversity in the Laramie Range. On this trip to Happy Jack/Vedauwoo, we will target species that have been found in the area, including Northern Saw-whet Owl, Long-eared Owl, Great Horned Owl, and Northern Pygmy-Owl. Join us this Saturday, March 18, for an evening owling trip to the Laramies.

We will meet at 6 pm at Coal Creek Coffee downtown. Expect to hike or snowshoe for 2 - 3 miles, and bring flashlights/headlamps. Dress warmly!
