Owl Prowl (ages 6-16)
February 24, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Young Naturalist and Jr. Conservationist Event – ages 6-16 – Parental supervision required.
An introduction to the mysterious lives of Ontario’s owls. Most owl prowls typically take place late at night or early in the morning. This owl prowl hopes to take advantage of afternoon light to hike through owl habitat, learning about their behavior and adaptations along the way. Finish off by relocating by car to a nearby spot to scout for owls in the setting sun.
Meet at Perch Creek Management Area park lot at 3pm before hiking some trails. Finish off by driving to another location along Blackwell Side Road where we will hope to see owls out at dusk. Finish by 6pm.
Be prepared to dress for wet, cold and slippery conditions and bring a flashlight/headlamp and binoculars if you have them. For those interested, snowshoes are available to rent from Sarnia public library. To reserve a pair visit: https://catalogue.lclibrary.ca/iguana/www.main.cls?v=c97386a2-914a-40c2-bd8d-df4c273175e6&p=8f1c53f0-41ad-4c28-8d9e-57e8288b0ac6#navigation
