Search for signs of owls as we enjoy a winter night hike through fields and forest. Start just outside the visitor center where you'll look at samples of owl wings, skulls, talons, and feathers to learn how these animals are adapted to low-light conditions. You will learn about owl calls, behaviors, and habitat as we look and listen for our resident screech, barred, and great horned owls.
