Explore the world of owls in this program for ages 6 and up. Discover some of the unique adaptations of owls, practice owl calls, and meet some of the museum's resident owls before going on a night hike to search for owls and other nocturnal life. Space is limited and there will be no walk-in registration for this event.
To preserve the magic of the night, we ask that only adults carry flashlights. A portion of this program is held outdoors without flashlights, using only natural light. Please leave toys, clothing, and shoes that flash or make noise at home so we can enjoy the sounds of the animals and the twinkling of the stars.
The path taken as part of this program is approximately two miles round-trip. While a portion is paved, the remainder of the path features unpaved, uneven terrain. The paved portion is approximately one-quarter mile long and has an average grade of 6%, with much steeper slopes in some areas (a standard accessibility ramp has a grade of less than 5%). The unpaved portion is relatively level.
Please wear sturdy, closed-toe walking shoes. Dress in multiple layers that can be easily removed so that you can stay warm and comfortable.
Storm date for this event is Saturday, Feb. 15.
