Creatures of the Night: Owl Walk for Age 15 & Up, The Institute

Creatures of the Night: Owl Walk for Age 15 & Up, The Institute

Thursday February 24th, 2022 * 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
(The Owl Walk was originally set for Feb. 3) 
Naturalist Lori Schlosser conducts a winter walk to areas of Pine Hill Park likely to attract owls. A pre-walk information session teaches about the nocturnal creatures and methods to locate them.
The activity is free (donations accepted), but registration is required and limited to 60. Spaces fill up quickly for this popular event, so anyone wishing to join the walk should register soon. To register, call 717-762-0373 or email to dave@natureandcultureinstitute.org
Just before the walk, Schlosser will present a brief introduction to owls and a preview of various owl calls. Schlosser will then lead the group along trails in the park. During several stops, the group will pause and call various owls, including the great horned owl, the barred owl and the screech owl.
Patience is required when trying to call owls. “If the calls are too loud, you can scare them off,” Schlosser said. Participants must stand quietly for short periods of time to watch for owl flight and listen for owl reply calls.
Schlosser hopes participants will attempt to call owls on their own once they have learned how. “They could go to places on their own, maybe in their backyard or along a road at the edge of a woods.” 
Those attending should dress appropriately for the weather, as the walk may last up to an hour. Flashlights are permitted; however, participants will be asked to turn them off during the walk to allow their eyes to adjust to the darkness.
This walk is limited to ages 15 and up. Dress warmly and bring flashlights. Limit 60. Free, but pre-registration is required.
Snow/rain date TBA if needed.
