Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World (Ages 8+)

February 18 @ 3:00 pm - 4:15 pm

$8 - $11

Monday, February 18
Adults & Youth Ages 8+
3:00-4:15pm (75 minutes)

Everyone loves owls!  Yet, how many of us have ever seen a live owl up close?

Perhaps you’ve glimpsed the shadowy form of a Great Horned Owl in the headlights as you’ve traveled a back road at night.  Ever scanned a frozen saltmarsh or farmer’s meadow in winter, hoping to find that Arctic hunter, the Snowy Owl?  How about a mob of noisy crows circling a white pine tree – have they found an owl?

Join naturalist Marcia Wilson and wildlife photographer Mark Wilson in sharing their passion for owls! “Who’s Watching You? Owls of the World” will introduce you to the owls of New England and beyond through a PowerPoint followed by a live presentation.  Some owls such as Great Horned, Barred and Eastern Screech Owls are more common than you might think.  Boreal owls and Great Gray owls are a rare find here, yet are found on other continents, too.  Others like Snowy Owls, Eurasian eagle owls and familiar Barn Owls often appear in popular movies and nature programs.  Mark and Marcia will share the field marks, signs and naturalist’s skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them, while introducing you to six live owls up close.  Everyone is treated to a hooting lesson, as well as tips on how to attract and protect owls near you.

Fees:  $8 per Member/$11 Non-Member
