On Thursday November 8, the Otter Creek Audubon Society will be holding our Annual Dinner and Meeting. A chance for us to get together with the OCAS community and celebrate the work we have done over the past year, and the volunteers who have made that work possible.

Our featured speaker this year will be renowned author, naturalist, and Hog Island Audubon Camp instructor, Scott Weidensaul. The great Snowy Owl irruption of 2013-2014 was a source of wonder and curiosity for most of those who witnessed the influx of this striking owl into the Champlain Valley and elsewhere in the eastern U.S. But for some, like Weidensaul,  it was an opportunity to do some innovative new science. In this talk, Weidensaul will tell us about co-founding Project SNOWstorm, an effort to track Snowy Owls in real time using GPS/GSM transmitters. The data gathered from this has led to unexpected discoveries about the life history of Snowy Owls.
