The Wyoming Naturlist Program Highlighted in this story from the Casper Tribune:
"Two miles off the end of a dirt road on Casper Mountain, Wyoming’s only northern saw-whet owl banding station sits perched overlooking the ridges of the Laramie Range.
Zach Hutchinson, a naturalist and bander with Audubon Rockies, comes out here every night during the owls’ migration season, just a couple months in late fall before the snow comes.
Tonight, he’ll have plenty of company. Ten participants and other instructors from the inaugural class of the Wyoming Naturalist Program are on their way up the mountain, for the last event of their first annual meeting."
