Join BAS Field Trip Coordinator Ryan O’Donnell and expert birder Frank Howe as we look-and especially listen-for the owls of Cache County.   We will hike up Green Canyon in the dark and broadcast calls occasionally to try to hear any of our local owl species, many of which should be starting to breed already this time of year.  Bring boots and a light, and meet at the parking lot of the Natural Resources building on the USU campus at 6:00 PM.  We’ll carpool from there, and we will be back by about 10:00 PM.
