Owl Prowl night hikes

Saturday February 16 & Sunday February 17


Registration is now open

Wondering what might be active in the late days of winter? Come and investigate what the owls of Rouge Valley might be up to. Discover who's out there on an evening of discovery and adventure with one of our Rouge Valley Foundation biologists. The night will begin with a short presentation on owls and their ecology as well as our local coyotes, followed by a trip into the woods. Enjoy the crisp winter air and the peacefulness and dark skies of the Valley as you listen for their calls. Learn and perhaps see first hand the mysterious world of the owl.

Please dress warmly and bring a travel mug for hot chocolate, tea and coffee which will be provided. Recommended for adults and children over five years of age. Please make sure to wear boots, hats, scarfs, mitts and to dress in layers. There will be crafts and activities for kids before and during the presentation to keep them busy.
