NWA organizations schedules Barred Owl release at Wilson Park Preserve in Fayetteville August 13



The Northwest Arkansas Land Trust and Northsong Wild Bird Rehabilitation will be hosting a rehabilitated barred owl release at the Wilson Springs Preserve in Fayetteville on August 13th from 6:00 PM until 8:00 PM.


This event will highlight the importance of both environmental and avian conservation in the NWA community.


Dr. Emily Warman from Northsong and a NWALT representative will give a 30-minute oral presentation about the background of the barred owl patient, and the impact that it will have on the Wilson Springs Preserve. The public is invited to join this family friendly event.

“We are excited to partner with Northsong to release this owl back into the wild at Wilson Springs Preserve,” said Marson Nance, director of land stewardship and research. “Barred owls have been observed on the preserve throughout the year. Barred owls nest and live in forests, wooded river bottoms, and wooded swamps. They tend to be prey generalists and are highly adaptable to a variety of landscapes including urban and suburban areas. "


"With 121 contiguous acres at Wilson Springs Preserve and its connection to Underwood Park, other Land Trust properties and a wooded corridor along Clabber Creek, we believe the preserve to be an excellent site for this owl to begin its next chapter.”


Snacks and drinks will be provided at no cost. Parking for the event will be available at the south end of the Sam’s Club parking lot at 3081 N, AR-112, Fayetteville, AR 72704.
