"Great horned owls, barn owls and screech owls are common species in Utah," Morgan Jacobsen, regional conservation outreach manager, said in a statement, "but stealth and twilight often keep them obscured from plain sight. So when you hear one, it's a special experience. This viewing event will be an excellent opportunity to observe these majestic birds."

While the event is free, registration is required and limited 30 people. To register, or for more information, contact Jacobsen at 435-613-3707 or [email protected] Meeting times and locations will be provided when you register.
