Pennsylvania’s Barn Owls
Barn owls are a fascinating example of the rich diversity of wildlife found in Pennsylvania. In this presentation, PA Game Commission diversity biologist Dan Mummert will talk about the biology, life history, and habitat requirements of these owls. He will then discuss why barn owls have been declining for many decades throughout the state and how the PA Game Commission’s Barn Owl Conservation Initiative has been working to learn more about these owls and reduce their decline.
Sebastian Harris, a local ecologist/artist has designed American Kestrel stickers that people can purchase to support this project. All proceeds from the sales of these stickers will be used for the purchase of nestbox supplies. Stickers are $4.00 and are available on his website.
