Owls are unique creatures have amazed and mystified humans for thousands of years. Join Environmental Educators for the evening to learn about the species of owls that are native to our region and their incredible adaptations. Each Owl Prowl will begin with an appearance by of one of our owl ambassadors, so you can see an owl up close and discover their fascinating characteristics. Then set out on a guided after-dark walk, during which an educator will use a calling device to try and coax owls into the area for you to hear. According to Educator Carl Heitmuller “owls have adapted in the most amazing ways.

These stealthy predators of the night are probably in your backyard removing rodents and other critters while you sleep!” In the past, this program has attracted Eastern Screech Owls and Barred Owls. For adults and families with children ages 7 and up.  Admission: Museum Members $8 Adults & Children 7 – 17. Not-yet-Members: $12 Adults & Children 7 – 17.
