Join The Ridges Sanctuary for an owl prowl program and hike on Feb. 28, 5:30-8 pm. It’s nesting season for the owls, so they’re hooting with a new set of calls. Join The Ridges’ naturalists to learn more about the county’s owls and the characteristics that make them amazing nighttime hunters. Wear appropriate winter hiking attire. The program is $10 for members, $13 for the public, and free for ages 18 and younger. Meet at the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center.
The Ridges will also host its fifth annual Owl-O-Rama on Feb. 29, 9 am – 2 pm, to offer great learning experiences for the entire family about these fascinating birds of prey, which are known for their distinctive calls, nocturnal habits and silent flight. Activities will include a story hour, crafts and workshops. Open Door Bird Sanctuary will be on hand with live birds, 11 am – 2 pm.
