In the News

There were two news items recently that touched on past blog stories that are worth repeating.

Ozark Hellbender- Jeff Briggler, MDC
NPR carried the story of efforts by the St. Louis Zoo to propagate the endangered Ozark Hellbender by creating a little "love nest" in artificially created flowing water.  The hellbender doesn't look like much of a lover, but it is a good daddy.  The story explains the process as well as showing pictures.

National coverage of the snowy owl irruption in the Ozarks quotes Charley Burwick and Janice Greene as well as presenting some nice graphic information on the Owl.  It also covers the Audubon Society's 112th annual Christmas Bird Count which included ten of our chapter's Master Naturalists.
