The Ridges will host its 2nd Annual Owl-O-Rama on Saturday, March 11 from 10 am – 4 pm. These fascinating birds of prey are known for their distinct calls, nocturnal habits, and silent flight. There will be great learning experiences for the entire family. Activities range from night hikes, crafts and workshops to live birds from the Open Door Bird Sanctuary and even a demonstration from a national and international award winning local taxidermist. The program is free and will take place at the Cook-Albert Fuller Nature Center, 8166 Hwy 57 in Baileys Harbor. Workshop fee for the Eastern Screech Owl Nest Box Building is $25 for adult members and $30 for the public. It will take place at The Ridges Workshop, 8288 County Q, Baileys Harbor.
On March 10-11 from 6-7:30 pm, join the Ridges naturalists for an Owl Prowl to learn more about the owls of Door County and the characteristics that make them amazing nighttime hunters. They will head into the night to listen and then return to the Nature Center for a mug of hot chocolate by the campfire (weather permitting). Suitable for all ages. Fee is $10 for members, $13 for the public, and free for those under 18. Meet at the Cook-Albert Fuller Center. For more information, visit RidgesSanctuary.org or call 920.839.2802.
