Barn Owl Box Project Inspires Scout – Gallery

In March 2015, a young Boy Scout named Saketh Kollu led a project to build barn owl boxes for Raptors Are the Solution, creating a training video and guiding a team of fellow scouts from start to finish. The result: nine beautiful boxes to shelter our local barn owls.
