Barn Owl Recovery Project in Southern Illinois
Join us for our Annual Meeting and special presentation by Dr. Jeff Walk on the Barn Owl Recovery Project.
The barn owl (Tyto alba) is Endangered in Illinois, and a Species in Greatest Need of Conservation in the Illinois Wildlife Action Plan. The primary reason for the species decline is loss of habitat for voles, it’s preferred prey, and suitable nesting sites. Jeff will tell about the Recovery Project, a six-step program that includes habitat enlargement and enhancement, deploying and monitoring man-made nest boxes and research.
Open to the public — everyone is welcome!
The meeting will take place at the Carbondale Township Hall, 217 E. Main Street.
