Summer is a great time for owls in Arizona. During this season, some migratory owls come here to breed, even as some of our human population leaves for the high country. Here or there, night is the time to listen for owls. Join Tom Gaskill as he introduces you to Arizona's most common owl species. You will learn about their behavior, preferred habitats and distinctive calls. This class will include a discussion of some of the conservation issues we face today, threatened species and urban owls. During the class, participants will explore the Garden after dusk to practice listening and looking for local owls.
