If you’ve never heard a real owl, or for that matter seen one up close, then you don’t want to miss out on this fascinating nature walk. Join our naturalist on a 30-45 minute walk along the woods. Owls will be called … listen closely to see if they respond. Hopefully you’ll see one up on his perch, wide-eyed and regal as he surveys his woods. After the hike, stick around for a bonfire and s‘mores and storytelling.
No pre-registration is required and event is held rain or shine. Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather as you will be outside for the duration. Bring something to drink, a roasting stick if you have one, camp chair, flashlight or miner’s cap and a great outdoor or nature story to share.
Owl Prowls are behing held at numerous state parks in the greater metropolitan Detroit area in November and December. See the complete listing at www.michigan.gov/dnrcalendar.
The Owl Prowl program is FREE, however a Recreation Passport is required for vehicles entering any Michigan State Park.
