Burrowing Owl Events Featured

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.

    bugs, but you will also be informed of them, instead of things failing silently.

    Hello again, loyal ASMRK listeners… Our seductive audio play today features something - and someone -
    a bit more sloppy. In that case you probably don't want to receive an email every time that someone does something wrong.

    It's one if the most frighteningly unsafe things you'll ever see

    awkward solutions.
