Just for Tyler members, this is a rare opportunity to hear, and hopefully see, some of the owls that call the Arboretum home. The evening begins with a short indoor program to learn about these nocturnal birds of prey followed by a short hike while trying to call in some owls. Winter is a great time to call in owls because they are setting up and defending nesting territories and looking for mates. They should respond readily to recorded calls. When we get back inside, young scientists will have the opportunity to dissect owl pellets to learn what owls eat. Hot drinks and snacks offer a delicious end to the evening. Dress warmly, wear footwear appropriate for uneven trails and bring a flashlight. This program is suitable for children ages 6 and older.
