MDC Offers Virtual Program On Missouri Owls

Because of owls’ nocturnal lifestyles and their hunting of mice, rats and other rodents that can be pests for humans, these night-time birds are a fascinating and beneficial part of Missouri’s outdoors.

The Missouri Department of Conservation has an opportunity for people to learn more about owl species found in Missouri in a virtual program “Owls of Missouri.”  This program is February 4th, from 6:00 – 7:00 pm, and is put on by the staff of MDC’s Shoal Creek Conservation in Joplin.

In the program, MDC Naturalist Jessie Ballard will provide information about the species of owls that are found in Missouri and will also have tips about how to identify their calls. This program is free and open to all ages. People can register for this program at:


Though this program is free, registration is required to participate using the link above. Registrants must provide an e-mail, so a program link can be sent to them. This program will include a chat-based question-and-answer period where participants can interact with the presenters.
