How do habitat features and climate change impact owls and other cavity-nesters?

December 14, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm UTC-7

Over the last six years, HawkWatch International has banded over 500 owls and mapped over 3,000 tree cavities as part of the Following Forest Owl program, an effort to close “knowledge gaps” that exist for a number of small, cavity-nesting owl species. The cavities used by these owls are also important to other wildlife, including other birds, bats, ringtails, squirrels, and insects; a single tree cavity can play home to generations of other wildlife over the years. But the question remains: how long do these features last, and how might they be impacted by a changing climate?

Join Graduate Research Associate Kassandra Townsend during this virtual event to learn more about the program and what we’ve learned about how habitat and climate change may be impacting owls and other wildlife.

HWI’s Following Forest Owls program is sponsored by the Earthwatch Institute and the community scientist volunteers who participate in the program. This event is made possible by Salt Lake County ZAP. Both are supported by the generosity of people like you.
