Cedar Falls Public Works and Parks Crew Save Owl

Posted on February 22, 2022 at 11:31 AM by Amanda Huisman


Giving a hoot for our community! 

While working his early morning route this month, Cedar Falls refuse driver Kevin Tegtmeier spotted an injured barred owl in the snow along Main Street. Kevin quickly notified City parks staff and Cedar Falls arborist Ryan Rieger was able to safely capture the owl and transport him to Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project for treatment. 


We thank Linda Nebbe and the Black Hawk Wildlife Rehabilitation Project for their continued partnership with the City and send our appreciation to Kevin, Ryan, and the Cedar Falls parks team for rescuing the feathered friend!
