Ridges Plans Owl-O-Rama Weekend

To raise awareness in the community on how to protect Wisconsin’s owl species, The Ridges Sanctuary will host its annual Owl-O-Rama on March 1 and 2.

The Owl Prowl on Friday, March 1, 6-8:30 pm, begins with a presentation at the Nature Center by Ridges Sanctuary Naturalist Jane Whitney on owl species that call Door County home – great horned, barred, saw-whet, eastern screech and, infrequently, snowy owls. After the presentation, participants will drive to the Ridges’ Logan Creek property to hear owls calling to one another. Carpooling will be available. Fees are $15, or $12 for members and $7 for ages 16 and younger. 

An Eastern Screech Owl Nest Box Workshop will take place Saturday, March 2, 12:30-1:30 pm. A Ridges staff member will provide all materials needed to assemble owl nest boxes, and provide guidance. Fees are $45 for the public, $40 for members.

Also, Open Door Bird Sanctuary will bring birds of prey to the nature center for a free program 1-3 pm, March 2.
