OWL PROWL
Friday, December 4
4:30pm

Our owls are on the move and making a hoot!

This fun event introduces participants to the amazing adaptations of native owls. We’ll gather (at a distance) in The Word Barn Meadow and meet real and live owls from the Center for Wildlife, learn about our native owl species, their ecology, and adaptations.

Following the presentation, we’ll take a short walk into the surrounding habitat to call for owls and listen for whooo might call back.

We welcome owl prowlers of all ages, but please remember that patience and a quiet atmosphere are crucial for owling.

This is not a youth program, but family friendly and children are most welcome (and will surely be fascinated, inspired, and learn lots). Children under 10 are free, but are required to register given capacity limitations.

Each ticket includes a complimentary beer, cider, or hot chocolate!

Proceeds from this program will support the Center for Wildlife and The Word Barn.

This is a distanced, open-air, contactless, masked, and COVID conscious event.
