Sanctuary Owl Prowl

January 7th from 5-6:30pm 
(snow/rain date January 21st 5-6:30pm)

Cost: $20 per person- event limited to 17 guests

Join the sanctuary for our very own Winter Owl Prowl! We’re taking to the meadows and forest trails to see who-who-who might be out and about in the nighttime winter woods. Guided by Ken Elkins, Community Conservation Manager from the Audubon Center Bent of the River, we’ll search for owl species known to breed near or at the sanctuary including the Great-Horned Owl, Barred Owl & Eastern Screech-Owl. Learn all about your favorite nocturnal raptors, their different owl calls, where they nest and how to protect these incredible birds.

This event requires standing still in the dark (and cold) for periods of time so that the owls are not disturbed. Ages 8 years and above. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Please dress appropriately for winter weather, hiking/snow boots, hats, gloves, hand warmers, etc and bring a flashlight or headlamp. Wind or heavy precipitation will postpone our event.

Please note: no restrooms on the property.
No refunds unless event is cancelled.
