Barn Owl Man

As expert rodent catchers, barn owls are an invaluable resource for farmers. Meet Scott, a LaGrande man who spends a lot of his time working to improve life for barn owls. Putting up over 60 nesting boxes in barns across his community, Scott has inspired a movement to protect and preserve the barn owl population in the Grande Ronde Valley. Learn about these beautiful birds and their need for good places to nest.
