Join us for owl surveys at White Castle

Join Cascadia Forest Defenders and owl surveyor Nancy Duncan this Saturday, August 10th for a owl surveying how-to! Arriving at the White Castle Timber Sale at 8pm we will be learning how to hoot, call and identify different types of owls until 11PM. We will use this knowledge to see what sort of owl activity there is in the timber sale and report the findings. This is a rare opportunity to learn from professionals a skill that can be utilized anywhere there are owls and timber sales to be thwarted.

We will be meeting at the parking lot across from the Dairy Queen in Myrtle Creek and carpooling out to the timber sale. Rendevzous is at 7PM. The following morning we will be doing a followup on the prior nights surveys, so come prepared to camp out or be ready to get back to Myrtle Creek around midnight. There is overnight parking.
