Educational Programs

Shooting, trapping, powerlines, automobiles, barbed-wire fences or poisoning directly or indirectly through pesticides or rodenticides, habitat loss, fragmentation and other human disturbance all threaten our owl population. 

Our goal is to provide you and others with the knowledge of how to help them and why they are so important to our fragile environment.


We offer programs that will give you a look into the life of an owl and how we can live side by side with them .

 

We believe that education is the answer for our owl population's survival

All About Owls offers presentations with live owls to schools, environmental organizations and for events. We teach about the natural history, identification and the amazing facts of our local owls. Our message is one of conservation and stewardship to inspire positive change through understanding the key role raptors play in our environment.

Rodent Control

Presentations with a focus on encouraging owls for a safe and natural means of rodent control are offered to vineyards, farms, ranches, and HOAs in Sonoma and Marin Counties.

Our fee, which includes a visit with one of our Ambassador owls is $175, or for both owls, $200.

    Would you consider putting an Owl Box on your property?
    Owl populations are declining due to human-caused environmental impact, and with the recent fires, parts of their habitat have been further decimated. There has been severe impact to their natural habitat, and it is getting harder and harder for them to find safe homes to nest and breed.

    We can all help them.
    Adding an Owl Box to your property will give a breeding pair of owls a safe home for them to raise their young. A place that will keep them safe from predators, tree thinning, and safe from our own housing expansion.

    In turn, they will help you.
    Owls feed on the pests you find hardest to control. Rodents. A family of nesting Barn Owls can catch 3,000 rodents in a four-month breeding cycle! And, like having a Bat House for insect control, an Owl Box is a natural way to protect your property from rodents.

    Let’s all do our part.
    In addition to the presentations and educational programs mentioned on our About Us page, we make it easy for you to purchase a premade high-quality home for owls, and their owlets. (Clicking 'About Us' doesn't lead to another webpage)

     

    Adding a Web Cam, will provide you with hours of entertainment and education as you watch a breeding pair occupy your owl box, then prepare their nest to nurture their young.

    Imagine watching as the hatchlings emerge from their shells in your box! You will witness the care and love provided to the owlets as they are raised to the point they are ready to leave the nest...

    Outdoor, solar powered security cams can be purchased on Amazon for as little at $50. Make sure to get Full Color Night Vision as a feature of the camera you select!

    With so many to choose from it would be impossible to recommend a cam, so we suggest you search Amazon for " outdoor webcam wireless battery powered" -or-

    Rodent & Insect Control

    If you poison insects or rodents, there’s a chance you will poison a Raptor.

    As Part of Our Mission at All About Owls to protect these magnificent creatures, we are offering you resources on alternatives to using rodenticides and insecticides.

    A family of Barn Owls consume 3,000- 5,000 rodents throughout their breeding cycle.  Screech and Burrowing Owls prey on both mammals and insects, and the number of insects they consume is dependent on the availability of each. It is safe to say that number is also in the thousands.

    What if they were to consume a rat or bug that had been poisoned?

    Volunteers

    Would you consider becoming one of our volunteers?

    We are looking for owl handlers and presenters.

    To qualify you will need to meet these requirements:

    • A friendly personality.
    • Be reliable with a flexible schedule.
    • Possess good communication skills with the ability to speak with a wide variety of people. Our presentations range from preschools to senior homes!
    • Have an interest in native wildlife, owls, education, conservation, and the dangers of rodenticides.

      Did you know that Barn Owls prefer to swallow their prey whole? Once they have digested what they can, the remains, mostly skin and bones, are processed by their gizzard into "pellets".

      They then cough these pellets up and the female uses her pellets to lay the flooring of their nests.
