Bringing Back the Burrowing Owl (Osoyoos Desert Centre)

August 4 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Osoyoos Desert Centre Nature Talks
From the Ground Up: Bringing Back the Burrowing Owl to BC

Athene cunicularia hypugaea, the Western Burrowing Owl, is a species at risk in Canada, extirpated from BC in the 1980s. For 30 years the Burrowing Owl Conservation Society of British Columbia (BOCS-BC) has been working on reintroducing Burrowing Owls to our grasslands through captive breeding and habitat enhancement. Lauren Meads, Executive Director of BOCS-BC, will introduce us to her very special guest Pluto while discussing the successes and obstacles of working with this remarkable grassland bird.
