Owl Prowl & Woodcock Walk
April 4, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Join us for an early spring night hike to learn about woodcock, owls, and other native Indiana wildlife active in the spring! Come out to the NMP EcoLab to enjoy an evening hike looking for owls, woodcock, and to see the handiwork of our resident beaver colony. We’ll start with a hike at dusk, looking and listening for the elaborate aerial displays and calls of the woodcock that reside in the EcoLab, do some owl calling, and look for other signs of early spring wildlife activity. We’ll learn about owl adaptations and the role of owls in the ecosystem, and will learn some really cool facts about woodcock too.
All ages welcome and encouraged! Bring flashlight, binoculars, and dress appropriately for the weather since we will be outside.
Parking is available near the Allison Mansion and in the Marian Hall lot across from Allison Mansion. We will meet at the St. Francis statue on the west side of the mansion, and then head down to the EcoLab shortly after.
