Meet Denver Holt: wildlife researcher, founder and president of the Owl Research Institute, dedicated field researcher, and subject of a National Geographic cover story.
Denver believes that long-term field studies are the primary means to understanding trends in natural history, and has spent the last 35 years studying owls in Alaska and Montana. Join us for an inspirational evening to hear about his incredible experiences and what he’s learned about owl ecology.
There will also be an auction opportunity to bid on a weekend at his field research station, working with and learning from him!

UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS — Spring means time for more newborn wild animals. That means people will bring them to the UI’s Wildlife Medical Clinic if they think they’re orphans, like these baby squirrels. Workers will treat the animals but say sometimes they don’t always need our help.
There’s a chance they weren’t even abandoned. To learn more, the clinic is holding a Wildlife Baby Shower. They’ll explain what to do when you find an orphaned animal. The workshop is free and open to the public.
