Growing concern about changes in the distribution, population status, and habitat loss for many species of owls led several of Minnesota and Wisconsin’s natural resource organizations to develop an Owl Monitoring project. Most owl populations are poorly monitored by existing bird surveys, such as the Breeding Bird Survey and Christmas Bird Counts. The Owl Monitoring project filled that gap with a volunteer-based owl survey conducted in early to late April each year beginning in 2005.

 What has the project learned about Minnesota Owls? Which years were exceptional years for northern species such as Great Gray, Boreal, and Northern Hawk Owls? What is the Superior National Forest doing to aid some of these owls? Join Dave Grosshuesch, Wildlife Biologist from the Tofte District on the Superior National Forest to find out what the owls have been telling us!

$5 per person; $10 per family payable at door.
