Mountsberg Conservation Area is once again gearing up for our popular winter Owl Prowl programs. Intrepid prowlers will be provided with lots of information on our native Ontario owls during a winter night hike to search for wild local owls.
There are four Owl Prowl nights scheduled: Friday, January 15 and 22 (from 7 to 9 p.m.) are advanced Prowls for Adults, while Saturday, January 16 and 23 (from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.) are all-ages Family Nights. Both evenings feature visits with the Mountsberg Raptor Centre’s resident birds of prey to give guests a memorable ‘nose to beak’ experience. The Family Nights also include a puppet show and a special campfire story time, while the advanced Prowl gives nature-minded adults a chance to learn the fine details of owl behaviour, anatomy, and natural history.
Admission for the Owl Prowl programs is by advance registration only online at www.conservationhalton.ca/events. Call Mountsberg at (905) 854-2276 for more information on the program.
