Learn the latest about the life and times of our local burrowing owls from our own first Lead Scientist, Dr. Lynne Trulio of San Jose State University, at this free online lecture hosted by the San Francisco Bay Bird Observatory (SFBBO).

Register here.

Dr. Trulio has studied burrowing owls for over 30 years.  There's more to know about their migratory behavior and about the attachment they show to their mates and to where they nest.  While burrowing owls are fascinating in and of themselves, they are also indicators of environmental sustainability, especially with respect to some of the nation's most endangered habitats: grasslands.  Learn what burrowing owls are telling us about how to preserve and sustainably manage grasslands for the benefit of wildlife and people.

Dr. Lynne Trulio has been on the San Jose State faculty for nearly 30 years, where she conducts research investigating human impacts to species and habitats and seeks effective methods to mitigate or eliminate those impacts. During that time, she served as South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project Lead Scientist (2003-08), as an American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS) Environmental and Engineering Fellow, and as a visiting scientist in the Wetland Division, Office of Wetlands, Oceans & Watersheds of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C. She received her PhD in Ecology from the University of California, Davis (1988) and her undergraduate degree in Biology from Goucher College in Towson, MD (1979). Dr. Trulio has been a long-time member and a collaborator with SFBBO and is the co-chair of the board for SFBBO.
