Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature

Snowy Owls Featuring Paul Bannick

Snowy Paul BannickSkagit Audubon Society and North Cascades Institute are thrilled to be partnering together to welcome award-winning author and photographer Paul Bannick for a special class on the Snowy Owl. We hope you'll join us as Paul shares an intimate look into the life history of one of North America’s most charismatic birds, the Snowy Owl!

Paul will combine his breathtaking images, first-hand accounts, video, sound, and science to help inspire conservation and education efforts as well as to help spread awareness about the threats facing these owls and what we can do to protect them. You will also be given a chance to ask Paul all of your burning owl questions after his presentation.

This program will take place on Tuesday, January 19th, at 7 pm.  The cost is only $5 and you can sign up at the following link:

Paul is proud to have recently published two new books: Great Gray Owl: A Visual Natural History and Snowy Owl: A Visual Natural History. Both books feature several dozens of never-before-published images, some of which capture behaviors rarely witnessed and perhaps never before photographed. The photos work with first-hand field accounts, which are illuminated by our most up-to-date understanding of these species. You can order copies of the books signed by Paul if you go to his website:
