The Hungry Owl Project (HOP) announces the 5th Annual Evening with Owls on Friday, November 20, 2009 from 6 PM – 9: 30 PM at the Marin Art & Garden Center in Ross. The $75 ticket price includes a light dinner, wine, beer and nonalcoholic drinks, with speakers, live educational owls, and a live auction. This event provides major funding for all of our programs. Please make reservations in advance at www.hungryowl.org.

Once again the always-entertaining Joe Mueller, Biology Instructor at College of Marin, will host the event. Joe will also give a talk about local owls commonly seen in Marin County. HOP volunteers will also speak: Maggie Rufo will talk about the Western Screech Owl, a common but not-often-seen resident owl in Marin, and Trinka Marris will present a brief overview of our latest projects and accomplishments. We are excited to announce the participation of Gina Farr of WildSoundStories.com, and appearances by live birds of prey, including a Snowy Owl, presented by Native Bird Connections of Martinez.

About the Hungry Owl Project The Hungry Owl Project, www.hungryowl.org, is a program of Wildcare, a 501(c)3 non-profit, www.wildcarebayarea.org. Our mission is to reduce the need for harmful pesticides & rodenticides by encouraging natural predators, through conservation of habitat, erecting nest boxes when appropriate, through research & education, and by providing a resource of help and information on alternative methods of sustainable pest management.
