Owl Prowl Dates Announced
Published on Oct 15, 2020 11:08

We can now announce the dates and times of this year's Owl Prowl.  Due to the popularity of this event and COVID safety guidelines, we are offering a multitude of times for this program over 2 separate weekends.  The goal is to keep each time slot at 10 people or less.  If you are interested, please register as soon as possible (HelmerNatureCenter@gmail.com or 336-3035) as this event typically sells out fast! Details are below:

Meet Sherlock and Watson, our Eastern Screech Owls, and learn about the amazing adaptations that allow owls to hunt at night and how to identify our local species by sight or sound.  Then join us on a nighttime walk through our woods where we will call to the owls and listen for owl activity.   

Groups will be limited to 10 people for safety and distancing on the trail. A portion of this program is inside. If you are interested in the program but are concerned, please contact us and we can discuss a digital alternative to the indoor portion. This activity is best for adults and children over 8 years old. 

Pre-registration is required, and spots are limited. Due to the popularity of this event, we are offering several days and times (see below). Specify your preferred date when registering. Contact Andrea Monahan (HelmerNatureCenter@gmail.com) or call Helmer Nature Center at 585-336-3035 for more information or to register.
