You can volunteer to help with these surveys

Casper - Recently Douglas Wildlife Biologist Willow Bish participated in Project WAfLS (Western Asio flammeus Landscape Survey).  Project WAfLS is a survey to determine population status, trends and threats against short-eared owls.  Willow did ten stops during a 90-minute survey, and while she didn’t see any short-eared owls on this route, she often sees them in her biologist district.  This survey was part of an eight-state effort to assess information on habitat use for short-eared owls, and while the survey routes are already in place for this year, the good news is, you can volunteer to join this citizen science effort in 2019!
