Our education ambassador owls play an important role in educating the public about the concerns of our grasslands.

One of the great things about the program is that it is community based. Some programs with endangered species tend to operate in a rather rarefied atmosphere, often with good reason. Ours is accessible, providing an opportunity for us to work closely with the owls and directly experience the grassland habitat they need.

The Burrowing Owl Recovery Program has given all of us a deeper understanding of the issues of this, and other, species, the places they live and the people that are stewards of the land.
