Action Alert: Protect Great Gray Owls in Oregon

Protect Great Gray Owls in Oregon: The southern Cascades in Jackson County are home to one of the most significant (and easily observed) populations of Great Gray Owls in Oregon. This population is particularly concentrated in the vicinity of Howard Prairie Lake east of Ashland.  Part of that area was included in the 2017 expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument, but several adjacent blocks in BLM ownership were left out.  Not coincidentally, these have some of the oldest, biggest trees, the most valuable for logging.  BLM's Griffin Half Moon timber sale targets those blocks, including areas known to be occupied by Great Gray Owls.  KS Wild and the Soda Mountain Wilderness Council are currently engaged in litigation against this sale.  

Audubon in the Schools Continues to Thrive and Expand

We have three new prospective volunteers for the Audubon in the Schools (AITS) educational program! They have signed on to shadow our instructors in classrooms to see what the program entails. We will continue with training as they rotate through with our instructors and into different class settings. We are thrilled to have new volunteers for this exciting work!

Get Involved—Volunteer!

Lane County Audubon Society is an all-volunteer organization, and our members are very proud of the energy and diverse talents that volunteers bring to our cause—we couldn’t do it without them. Volunteering with LCAS is a great way to meet new people, give back to the community, and—best of all—have fun! For more information, contact Maeve Sowles at 541.343.8664 or audubon (at) laneaudubon.org
