Owl Feeding (three volunteers needed):

San Tan Valley tent after March 25th, for 5 weeks. Volunteers need to be available during the entire five week period. One volunteer will feed the owls Mon-Friday and another will feed on Saturday and Sunday. The third volunteer is a fill in for days the other two cannot make it. Feeding the owls requires volunteers to store bags of frozen mice in their freezers (mice do not smell). Mice will need to be thawed and taken to the feeding site. If interested, please contact: Greg Clark, Wild at Heart’s burrowing owl site coordinator @ 480-688-0118.
