Evening Lecture: Snowy Owls with Denver Holt
May 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join us in celebrating Snowy Owl Week with an evening with Denver Holt, who will share the Owl Research Institute’s fascinating research on these exquisite raptors. For 28 years now – beginning in 1992 – ORI has studied Snowy Owls on their Arctic breeding grounds near Utqiagvik, Alaska – one of the only places in the United States where their lives begin. Snowy Owls are a species who rely on specific Arctic prey and habitat to breed and nest. And this is the fastest changing ecosystem on Earth.
During their time in the field with these owls, Denver and his team have learned a lot. They’ve seen Snowy Owl and brown lemming numbers declining for reasons we don’t yet understand. They are concerned for the future of Snowy Owls, and that’s why they’re the focus of much of their research and conservation efforts.
Come listen to Denver share ORI’s work and stories and research, and celebrate the strength of Snowy Owls.
