|At the nets the 1st owl of the night wows Cat Lang|
|I bring the owl safe in a flannel bag,|
to the banding station table for all
participants to see.
|Project volunteer Ken Sobon shows the owls dense feathers to Cat and all, and begins the banding and measurement process. Volunteer JoAnna Arroyo is in the background holding #2 owl.|

|Reserve education coordinator Jon Aull meets an owl|
Both children get to release an owl into the night. Their instructions are to be a tree let the owl perch on their arm like they would on a branch to allow the owls gather their bearings and fly off into a nearby oak tree.
And here is the group sharing their awesome adventure! This little owl banded #1014-82091 is named Dakota by the Lang family.
