All About Owls

Buena Vista County Conservation Park, Buena Vista County

Friday, February 3, 2023

Everyone knows what owls look like, but have never seen a member of this beautiful species in person. These mysterious birds glide on silent wings through the night, their haunting calls echoing through the quiet dark. You will have a chance to meet this elusive predator in person on Friday, February 3rd!

The special “All About Owls” evening begins at 6:00 p.m. in the South Shelter house at Buena Vista County Conservation Park. Stop by to make an owl-themed craft, sip some hot cocoa or coffee, enjoy some refreshments, and meet Luna, the education barred owl.   

At 6:30 p.m., Naturalist Katie will present a short program on the owls of Iowa, followed by an owl prowl. The owl prowl will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the South Shelter. Naturalist Katie will lead a short hike to call owls. Snowshoes will be available (at no charge) for the owl prowl if there is at least six inches of snow.  If there isn’t sufficient snow cover, please wear appropriate walking shoes or boots. Please dress for the weather if you are planning to go on the hike.   

Reservations are required by Wednesday, February 1st. To RSVP, call the conservation office at 712 -295 -7985. This program may be cancelled due to weather or lack of registrations.
