Game Commission to hold owl program in Dallas

August 6th, 2017 11:21 am

The Pennsylvania Game Commission will host a program on Pennsylvania owls as part of its summer wildlife educational series. This program will be held Wednesday, Sept. 13, at 7 p.m. at the Back Mountain Regional EMA building in Dallas.

Game Commission Northeast Region diversity biologist Rich Fritsky will provide information on owl biology and behavior, the species of owls commonly found in Pennsylvania, and the Game Commission’s Barn Owl Conservation Initiative.

“Owls are one of nature’s most secretive and charismatic birds of prey,” Fritsky said. “We will be discussing their unusual and highly effective adaptations that help them survive.”

The Back Mountain Regional EMA building is located at 3593 Route 118 (one-half mile west of the intersection of routes 118 and 415), in Dallas. No reservations are required. For more information contact the Game Commission Northeast Region Office at 570-675-1143.
