Bear River Bird Refuge Hosts Owl Day Saturday To Inform Public

Jan 9, 2014

The Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge is hosting Owl Day on Jan. 11. Owl Day is a part of a series of bird related events at the Brigham City refuge which includes swan day and eagle day.

Brigham City's Owl Day will be held on Sat. 11, 2014.

Charlotte Mason, environmental education specialist for the refuge, said it has been around since 1928 with its visitor center opening its doors in 2006.

“We’re strictly a migratory bird refuge, so we basically manage the land so birds can come on their long pathways for migration and have a place to rest and breed and molt,” Mason said.

There will be live owls at the event along dissectible owl pellets and owl stories.
