Program Information

Project SNOWstorm, the snowy owl monitoring project, is now in its third year. Please join Rich and Brenda Keith from the Kalamazoo River Valley Bird Observatory (a program of the Kalamazoo Nature Center), as they share how they have been involved and what has been learned from the crowd-funded project.  

Snowy Owls are usually rare visitors to Michigan, but since the winter of 2013 they have been seen more frequently. The last two winters were “irruption” years. This phenomena is when food is so abundant in their breeding grounds, that snowy owls have a great breeding season and some head south for the winter due to limited resources. Come and learn more about these beautiful daytime hunters.
