This collection contains 2,456 botanical specimens. The majority of the specimens were collected from Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Idaho, and Alaska in the 1950s through 1970s. Dr. H. T. Shacklette was the major curator and contributor during that time. The collection was transferred to the USGS from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) in 1996 when the unit that would become the Biological Resources Division became part of the USGS. The collection was accessioned as USGS museum property in 2005. It is housed at the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History Herbarium, where it is integrated with the rest of the Herbarium's collection. The specimens are curated, and their use is managed, by...
This collection consists of eastern screech owls that were hatched at the Eastern Ecological Science Center (EESC) for research purposes. They are no longer needed for USGS research purposes, so they have been transferred to the Goshawk Society. All of the owls have lived their lives in captivity and cannot be released to the wild. They are full winged, captive bred, and parent-reared, so they are not habituated to people other than brief contact for feeding. There are 14 female owls and 22 male owls in the collection, with ages ranging from hatch year 2006 to 2021. The owls were transfered to the Goshawk Society in two groups. The first group consisted of 8 males, ages of hatch year 2010, 2011, and six 2021, with...
