Owl Prowl at the Laurels Preserve
Join wildlife ecology graduate student Amanda Crandall on an Owl Prowl at the Laurels Preserve.
We will meet at dusk to learn about, search for, and listen for local owl species, including Great Horned Owls, Barred Owls, Eastern Screech-Owls, and maybe even migrating Northern Saw-whet Owls. All ages are welcome so long as participants feel comfortable with light hiking in the dark.
Amanda Crandall has a B.S. in biology with a concentration in ecology and environmental biology from James Madison University. She is currently pursuing a M.S. in wildlife ecology from the University of Delaware where she is using weather radar to study the relationship between land use change and climate change on migratory bird stopover. Amanda spent four years in the field assisting with avian research projects across the U.S. including migration banding, surveying, and tracking. She loves birds and sharing that love with other people!
