Boosting awareness of burrowing owls and their habitat will be the focus of three events beginning next month, hosted by the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of BC and World Wildlife Fund Canada.

Burrowing owls, an at-risk species, are "charismatic little ground dwelling owls of semi-arid grasslands," the society said, adding they are native to the southern Interior.

The society breeds and releases owls into the region, and volunteers build artificial burrows for them to nest in upon being released.

The first workshop takes place on Sept. 8 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. near Oliver, at a breeding facility located behind the South Okanagan Recovery Centre for Owls.  There, participants will build burrows before a discussion on conservation for the final hour.

A second event will take place on Oct. 5 at the Osoyoos Visitor Centre, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Attendees there will head to a "well-established site" to install burrows and remove invasive plants from their entrances.

A third event is scheduled for Oct. 13 at the Quilchena Resort near Merritt from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., similar to the one taking place in Osoyoos.

"The fall is a perfect time to install and/ or repair burrows for the owls as they have migrated to their wintering grounds in California and even into Mexico," the society noted.

Space is limited, and those looking to participate can find more information and register here.

    They’ve already attracted a bevy of the adult world’s brightest stars
    as spokespeople (SFW) and so far looks like the one to watch in this
    space. Why Free Adult Webcams? The Best Free Live Cam Site YesCams!
    Be good and make sure you make the cam sluts cum too.
    Still, I reasoned, that didn't make my mother a murderer.
    Turn on your webcam and make it real. Gordon made a fortune taking
    commission from retailers big and small (SFW) including the mega-site ClubLove
    that published the infamous Pam and Tommy Lee sex tape in 1998 that everyone wanted to get their hands on. It might be a
    small twist on an old favorite or something totally new and
    original. And that means the old 60’s slogan got it
    all wrong. What if you got paid to watch ads and your
    vote on whether you liked the ad actually mattered?

    But what if you got paid for your attention? Micropayments could flip all that on its
    head, which is the basic premise behind attention economy tokens like BAT.

    In the background, behind a table with a bottle of champagne, the curtains are conspicuously drawn.

    Betting can be of many forms, with each type requiring its own legal arrangement.
    In Nevada, for instance, there is what's called a"suit." A
    lawsuit is an agreement or a contract involving a individual placing
    a wager and the individual or group putting the cash at stake.
    In certain states, a"gaming accounts" is made in which
    cash deposited into the account is retained by a bookmaker
    and is not available to gamers; others allow online gambling but do
    not permit offline gambling. In the end, there are"rollover" trades in which the cash in a player's account is removed before it's used.
    This manner, the term gaming covers a wide selection of trades and can refer to every one of them,
    as each has its own set of conditions under which it may take place.

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Spending some time
    and actual effort to generate a very good article… but what can I say… I
    procrastinate a whole lot and don't manage to get nearly anything done.
