Caught in the SNOWstorm – Scott Weidensaul
The winter of 2013-14 saw the largest invasion of snowy owls into the eastern United States in perhaps a century — and marked an unprecedented opportunity to learn more about these mysterious Arctic hunters. Author and researcher Scott Weidensaul will share the story of Project SNOWstorm — how a huge, collaborative research effort focused on snowy owls came together in a few frantic weeks, funded with the help of people from around the world, and continues to make discoveries and unexpected insights into the life and ecology of this great white raptor.
Plan now for the 2015 Pennsylvania Academy of Science Annual Meeting being held on Friday, April 10, 2015 to Sunday, April 12, 2015, at Lebanon Valley College in Annville, Pennsylvania. Details on the meeting, lodging, and field trips will be coming soon.
