In Search of Evening Owls

*Registration for the program is now closed as we have reached capacity so that everyone may enjoy the program. If there is another outing planned, we will spread the word.*
Please save the date and join us for a presentation and winter walk on Friday, January 13th, at 6:00 pm. MooseWood Nature Center invites our members and friends to learn about and interact with owls native to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

Board Member and bird enthusiast, Scot Stewart will begin with an introduction to the unique hunters themselves through a short 20-minute presentation. To be followed by car pooling from the nature center to the off-site location(s) where owls have recently been active. We will call to the owls and listen for their replies.

We may hear Great HornedGreat GrayBarred, or Saw-Whet owls. This time of year these mysterious birds make themselves known to each other by calling for mates and defining their territory. By late February, early March, mating pairs will be incubating a clutch of one to four eggs. That’s why Winter is the perfect time to hear owls “whooing”!

Suggested donation for the program is $5 for adults and $10 for families.

This program is recommended for adults and families. Please dress for the weather.

If you are not a member, please consider a membership at the family level or above or renew your membership for 2023. MooseWood Nature Center thanks you for your support as we move forward into the New Year!
