Barn Owls and American Kestrels have long been a valuable presence in the rich and rolling agricultural lands of the Hershey area. Starting in 2008, a concerted effort was made to install and monitor Barn Owl and Kestrel nest boxes in appropriate habitat on Milton Hershey School's campus and surrounding farmland. The project has since grown into a professional collaboration with ZooAmerica, PA Game Commission, and other conservation partners. Learn about these regional conservation efforts, unique educational opportunities that benefit MHS and other local schools, and how you can support Barn Owl and Kestrel conservation in the region from project coordinator Nate McKelvie and ZooAmerica partners Tim Becker and Ann Holzman.
Join us at 6:30 PM for virtual socializing. The meeting starts at 7:00, followed by the program.
