Owls are creatures of rare beauty and unique biological interest that play an enormously important role in keeping the balance in nature. Come spend an evening with these creatures with large eyes and silent flight, and learn why they are so magical. In this talk we will learn about the local owls of the Bay Area, their habitats and their hoots. Following the talk we will have a Q&A and the opportunity to meet live owls up close. Come learn why the true facts about owls are even more fascinating than the myths!
Trinka Marris is a founding member of the Hungry Owl project, an organization dedicated to owl conservation and educating the public about the importance of owls in the balance in nature. Trinka is a certified naturalist who has participated in extended biological field studies in Alaska and the Mojave Desert. She has a small farm in Point Reyes which she shares with her sheep, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats, and of course…the local owls.
The Marin Art & Garden Center collaborates with The The Hungry Owl Project to sponsor an owl nesting box and distribute boxes to property owners. Watch for the annual Talons festival at MAGC in the fall.
Reception with guest ambassador owls following the talk.
