We had such a great turn out at the February 6th program (it was standing room only in the back room) instructor, Scot Stewart has agreed to an additional presentation and outing. We hope you will be able to join us especially our guests who didn’t get to see and hear the owls during the last outing.

Please save the date and join us for a second presentation and winter walk on Friday, February 23rd, 6:30 pm. MooseWood Nature Center invites our members, friends, and the public 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 slide presentation. The presentation will 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. Please let us know your coming by registering by Thursday, February 22nd.

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