7:15 p.m. – Scott Rashid presents An Intimate Look Into the Lives of Barn Owls
Every year, BCAS hosts a Holiday Sale, bursting with gifts for the naturalist in your life. Many of the area’s finest artists showcase their wares in a splendid array of genres. Please come and enjoy homemade seasonal treats along with mulled cider while browsing and (we hope) buying!
The evening of the Holiday Sale also begins your opportunity to sign up for our ever so popular, “Interludes With Nature” fundraising trips. Watch Nature-Net in early November for a list of the coming year’s offerings: always the very best leaders and best places!
7:15 p.m. For four years, Boulder County Audubon has been partnering with Scott Rashid of the Center for Avian Research and Rehabilitation Institute in Estes Park (CARRI). Scott posited that Barn Owls were uncommon due to the lack of nesting cavities. BCAS helped provide funds to install nest boxes on private properties in northern and eastern areas of Boulder County. Hear Scott tell of the wonderful successes and interesting data gleaned from this fruitful project.
Scott has spent a lifetime on avian research. He is a licensed bander (including hummingbirds), an author and fine artist. He has published numerous articles, and three books which will be available at the sale: Small Mountain Owls, The Great Horned Owl and Northern Goshawk, The Gray Ghost.
