Rural Action Owl Prowl 2020
January 29 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
Knock Knock, hoo’s there? Join Rural Action for the Sunday Creek Owl Prowl.
Have you ever heard an owl’s call but never seen one? Wondered how an owl pinpoints a tiny shrew on the forest floor? Join Rural Action at the 2020 Sunday Creek Owl Prowl taking place on Wednesday, February 19th at 6:00 pm at Burr Oak State Park Lodge. Don’t miss this unparalleled environmental education opportunity to learn about owls that live in southeast Ohio.
Bring the kids and let them inspect an owl pellet for bones or create an owl-themed craft at 5:30 pm. At 6:00 pm Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) naturalist Pat Quackenbush will give a short presentation on owl adaptations. Participants will also be able to see a live owl during the presentation. Stick around for a short walk outside as we call these magnificent nocturnal predators in hopes of hearing them or even catching a glimpse of an owl in the wild.
There will be a complimentary meal of soup beans and cornbread before the event at 5:30 pm provided by Burr Oak Lodge. Hot chocolate and cookies will also be served. Burr Oak Lodge is located at 10660 Burr Oak Lodge Rd., Glouster, OH 45732. Please dress for the weather, bring a flashlight or headlamp if you desire, and remember it’s important to be quiet so we don’t scare the owls away. This event is family-friendly and free.
