DoD is funding 41 National Public Lands Day (NPLD) sites on military installations in 2011. The event encourages volunteers to explore and enjoy America’s natural wonders through outdoor recreation. Find out more about one of these projects below.
Oregon (Umatilla Chemical Depot, Army): Participants dug burrows for Burrowing Owls, acquired GPS locations for all burrow sites, provided training and knowledge about owl ecology to volunteers, and helped make progress towards supporting 75+ nesting pairs in 2012. Umatilla Chemical Depot wants to become a source population of Burrowing Owls for the Pacific Northwest.
