Are you looking for a conservation-oriented Christmas gift that supports local science? Consider becoming and adoptive guardian of the Northern saw-whet owl (NSWO). One that was banded, measured and released at the Big Chico Creek Ecological Reserve (BCCER). Our fall study is now in its 10th year of long-term migration monitoring. Did you know this adorable predator may be wintering in your backyard shrubs, gobbling up rodents? Our project also educates the community about the elusive saw-whet and contributes to local and national conservation programs. We are a project of Chico's Altacal Audubon Society and the national Project Owlnet.
