Owen Sowerwine Natural Area

The 2017 OSNA Volunteer Monitoring period begins this month (March).

Volunteer Monitors provide up-to-date information about what is happening at Owen Sowerwine that is essential to Flathead Audubon’s management of OSNA.

You can help by becoming an OSNA Volunteer Monitor.

Monitors record their information on the OSNA Volunteer Monitoring Form while visiting OSNA, then send the filled-out form to our On-the-Ground Manager (address on the form). The OSNA Map for Monitors should be used with the Form.

There are two ways to be a Volunteer Monitor:  (1) Sign up for a scheduled monitoring visit, in which case you will use the Form to tell you all the places you should check out, and what to look for. Or (2) take a Form with you whenever you visit Owen Sowerwine, and use it to record what parts of OSNA you visited, and what you saw. See OSNA Volunteer Monitoring Program for more information, including how to sign up for a scheduled monitoring visit.

THANK YOU to all who have served as Volunteer Monitors over the last 10 years! Your help has been crucial to the success of Flathead Audubon’s management of Owen Sowerine.
