Join us Sunday afternoon, May 22, at 3 p.m. to learn more about Burrowing Owls. Andrea Orabona, Nongame Bird Biologist from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department's Lander office, will describe an ongoing study radio tracking Wyoming's Burrowing Owl migration and wintering areas. Andrea collaborates with Courtney Conway (University of Idaho) and other research partners in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. The burrowing owl is a Species of Greatest Conservation Need in Wyoming. Andrea will discuss the need for this project, its objective, methods, and results. Masks are encouraged at this event.Location: Berry Biodiversity Conservation Center auditorium (Room 138). This building is located on the University of Wyoming campus at 10th and Lewis Streets. Due to ongoing construction in the area, there is no longer a parking lot across the street from the building - parking is available on surrounding streets.
