Help give burrowing owls a second chance – out of the path of development!
We will be helping Wild at Heart, a volunteer organization dedicated to preservation of Arizona's native wildlife, remove an acclimation tent for relocation of these owls down in the Rio Salado. We will be working at a site at 24th Street, just north of the Salt River. We will send you a map when you rsvp.
The project goes from 8am to noon. All tools are provided. Gloves will be available, but if you have a favorite pair of your own you may want to bring them along.
The site is in full sun, so a hat, sunscreen, long pants and a long-sleeved shirt are recommended. Also recommended is something to cover your face; there will be dust. Greg Clark will bring some dust masks, but regular cotton cloth, like a bandana, will work better for the type of soil we'll be working with.
Water is also provided, but from 5-gallon water coolers, so we suggest you bring along your own water bottle. If you want something else to drink or any food you will need to provide those. There are no eating places nearby. Sierra Club will bring some snacks – fruit and granola bars.
Please contact Sandy Bahr at (602)[masked] or [masked] and let her know if you plan to participate. She will give you further details and the meeting location.
