Adopt-an-Owl is a fun way to help support the Flammulated Owl Monitoring Project.
The project began in 2012 around Lake Davis. The goal of the project is to facilitate the conservation of Flammulated Owls on national forests. The objectives are to study Flammulated Owl populations around Lake Davis, the largest and densest known population of this species in the northern Sierra Nevada, to determine: 1) their use of nest boxes; 2) the effect of forest management on their populations; and 3) the interaction between nest boxes and forest management and its application to conservation of this species.
