Owls of Yellowstone
May 24 - 26
Katy Duffy, M.S.
Are you curious about owls and their mostly nocturnal activity? You will spend classroom time examining owl wings, tails, and feet (on loan from Yellowstone National Park) along with a presentation showing images of owls found in Yellowstone and their preferred habitats. You will also learn the vocalizations owls make when they are seeking a mate. You will then explore owl habitat during an afternoon field trip. That evening, you will conduct a sample owl survey. The following morning, you will explore additional habitat for different owl species.
