Graff will first present a brief introduction to owls.
He will then lead the group along trails in the park.
During several stops, the group will pause and listen for various owls, including the great horned owl, the barred owl and the screech owl.
Patience is required when trying to find owls.
Participants must stand quietly for short periods of time to watch for owl flight and listen for owl calls.
“Owls may or may not be present,” Graff said, “so the group will also investigate how the park changes after dark.
U/V lights will be used to look at trees, leaves, and insects to see how their appearances change under different light.”
The activity is free.
Space is limited to 16 participants, and registration is required.
