“Whooooo cooks for you – whooooo cooks for you all?” While we may not answer the barred owls question this evening, we hope to answer some of yours about these local residents. Participants will spend the first part of the class indoors learning about owls, after that, Naturalist and expert owl caller Chuck will lead us on a moonlit hike and owl-calling escapade. People frequently are surprised to learn that owls will be sitting on eggs or hatching owlets soon. Online registration required.
