The Klamath Bird Observatory is partnering with Intermountain Bird Observatory to carry out the *Western **Asio Flammeus **Landscape Study (WAfLS)* <https://www.avianknowledgenorthwest.net/citizen-science/short-eared-owls>. This community science project is the largest Short-eared Owl survey in the world, currently spanning eight western states and is designed to gather information to better evaluate the population status of the Short-eared Owl. Volunteers will enjoy rural Oregon at twilight while completing two road-based surveys during early spring. The surveys consist of driving on secondary roads and stopping at 8 to 11 points to complete a five-minute survey. Training material will be provided and *no experience is necessary to volunteer*.
