The Avian Scientific Advisory Group (ASAG) has an award program to identify and reward significant achievement in avian husbandry in the captive animal field. The recipients of these awards are leaders in the field and committed to furthering avian conservation.

We are proud to announce that Fossil Rim received the Plume Award in April 2020 for “Long-Term Dedication To Attwater’s Prairie Chicken”!

Avian Curator Janet Johnson has been a Fossil Rim staff member since 2001, while Cara Burch, Senior Animal Care Specialist – Avian, has been on staff since 2008. Additional staff working hard for these birds include Stephanie Davis, Molly Shea (prior to 2020), and numerous prairie grouse conservation interns through the years.

  1. I have a beautiful owl that was found eating our squirrel by breaking the wire. After killing several of our squirrels we were able to enter in the stable and remove the remaining squirrels. However, the owl didn’t know how b to get out. This animal is huge and beautiful and b it’s still inside our stable. Let me know if you all want it. But you have to come and get it. Again beautiful creature. It maybe a good addition to your birds.

    1. Thank you for offering. All of our birds at the Children’s Animal Center are tame, as opposed to wild. You might check with zoos in your area.
