Owl Prowl

Pammel State Park, Madison County

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

February’s monthly nature night program, scheduled for 6:30 pm on February 12th, will come in the form of an Owl Prowl at Pammel Park. A growing trend in the Midwest, owl prowls are typically held in February which is prime time for owl calling as members of our resident owl populations become very vocal as they search for mates.

Our Owl Prowl will begin at the Nature Center in Pammel Park with an interpretive program presented by wildlife rehabilitator Beth Brown. Beth has spent many years working with injured birds including raptors such as owls, hawks, and vultures. Over the years, she has treated birds injured by vehicles, bad encounters with electrical lines, gunshot wounds, and consumption of poisoned rodents. During the owl prowl, Beth will be highlighting her work with owls and she will be accompanied by an example of her work, a live barred owl. There is no doubt this will be a great program as Beth has many years of experience providing educational programs through Clarke County Conservation and her work as a rehabilitator.

After Beth’s program, we will be heading out for a night hike through Pammel Park to see if we can chat with any of the park’s resident Barred Owls. We will be using an electronic caller to entice the owls to come in for a closer look. Anyone skilled in owl calling is welcome to try their own vocalizations during the hike.

This program is free and open to people of all ages. Although this will definitely be a program the children will not want to miss, you do not need to bring a child to attend this program.
