Come over to the dark side of Rowe Sanctuary for the annual Owl Prowl, a family-friendly, education event focused on owls and other nocturnal creatures. The event is from 6:00 – 8:30 pm at the Iain Nicolson Audubon Center at Rowe Sanctuary on Saturday October 29.
During the event, people can participate in hands-on activities, such as owl pellet dissection, discovering skins and skulls, and an art activity, from 6:00-7:30 pm. For up-close views of live owls, Deb Miller from Edgerton Explorit Center in Aurora will have demonstrations with multiple birds of prey species that will include information about each bird, and answer any questions people may have. At 7:15 or 7:30 pm, guided owl prowl hikes to explore nature at night will occur so be sure to dress for the weather.
Special activity: if skies are clear, Platte Valley Astronomical Observers will be on site with some telescopes to allow participants to explore the night sky and learn more about the stars they see nightly.
The cost to attend is $5 per family or group.
