What We’ll Do

Join naturalist Leigh Calvez for a presentation on the hidden lives of owls. Leigh makes the science entertaining and accessible through the stories of the people who study these birds in the wild and her own avian adventures in the field. She trails snowy owls on the Alaskan tundra; hikes through tangled old-growth forests to find rare spotted owls; captures charismatic burrowing owls on the derelict Umatilla Chemical Depot; and helps to save a family of great gray owls in the Blue Mountains of Oregon. Join us for this owling adventure and learn about these elusive birds that have fascinated us for millennia.
