Owl Prowl

Who gives a hoot?  This program will introduce you to some of the park’s residents that like to keep watch during the night hours.  You will learn about some of our owl species, their habitats, and tips of what you can do to help these night watchers.  If the weather is good we will take a short walk along the park’s 1/2-mile nature trail and try to call in any of the owls that may be nearby.

Meet at the Visitor Center.
