• Each spring at Twin Lakes in North Boulder, east of 63rd, a family of Great Horned owls nest in a hollow tree.

• For decades, thousands of people have come to see to see the newly hatched baby owls emerge from their nest. Mother and father owl are never far away. It’s thrilling to see tremendous owl wingspans flying up from the meadow behind their nesting tree with a delicious mouse or other meal for the young owlets.

However this much loved owl family is terribly threatened.

Will the owl hunting meadow at Twin Lakes be protected as an Owl Preserve or be bulldozed and become a high density housing development?

Wildlife biologists tell us that human activities can destroy owl habitat and make them less likely to survive.

A wonderful and nurturing place for owls and people, the new 20 acre preserve will feature interpretive signs with beautiful pictures explaining the owl life cycle and importance of the hunting meadow.

• The City of Boulder will decide the future of the owls on Dec 15, 2015.
