Did you know that Great Horned Owls are the first birds to nest in Michigan?

Owl in Snow by Steve GettleAlthough many birds wait for warmer weather, February is the peak of these owls’ mating season. It’s the time of year that these mysterious birds make themselves known to each other by calling for mates and defining their territory. By the end of the month, mating pairs will be incubating a clutch of one to four eggs.

That’s why this is the perfect time to hear great horned owls “whooing.” Howell Conference & Nature Center invites the public to learn about and interact with owls native to Mid-Michigan.

The program begins with a live show featuring owls from the Nature Center’s Wild Wonders Wildlife Park. Then take a walk in into the woods to call in Great Horned and Screech Owls and listen for their replies. The evening finishes with hot chocolate and cookies for all participants.

Owl Nights are being held February 8 and 9, from 7 to 9 p.m. Cost of the program is $8 for adults and $6 for children.

This program is recommended for age three and up.

Advanced registration is required, please call (517)546-0249 to save your place.

  1. Just wondering if there are any updates on the Macro Photography workshop. I have not received any information since I have registered, so I am assuming it is still on.

    • yes, but you must do so before 9 a.m. on September 19. after that, the race day registration fee goes into effect, which will make it $30 per person.

      thanks so much for asking, hope to see you there!

  4. Hello! I have a nearly 3 year old and we are interested in attending your program on the 14th. Do we need to register to attend?

    • Yes, Brooke, please register by calling 517-546-0249. Our Welcome Center is open 9 a – 3p daily and can take your reservation by phone.

  5. Hello I wanted to bring my girls to the Ground Hog Celebration and just am seeing you had to register. I called and the office is closed… would it be possible to attend? Thank you! :)

    • Thanks for asking, Laura! it is now available for download when you scroll down to the bottom of the page.

      I am so glad you asked, because when I updated it yesterday, I neglected to click the UPDATE button!!! Thank goodness for autosave!

    • Tyara, we have two 500′ zip lines and will be adding more late this summer. All training and safety equipment is provided. I believe that the only restrictions are that you must be over 5 years old and under 250 pounds. Please call 517-546-0249 for dates and reservations. April

    • our high ropes course could be a great exercise for a couple. There are obstacles suspended about 30′ off the ground that traverse from tree-to-tree. It is TOTALLY safe, but challenging and –for me, anyway–a pretty big thrill.

      Be sure to call 517-546-0249 to make your reservation!
