Did you know that Great Horned Owls are the first birds to nest in Michigan? January and February mark the peak of their mating season, and they keep on “whooing” well into March; the time of year that these mysterious birds make themselves known to each other by calling for mates and defining their territory. By late February/early March, mating pairs will be incubating a clutch of one to four eggs.

Our program begins with a live show featuring owls from Wild Wonders Wildlife Park followed by a walk into the woods to call to Great Horned and Screech Owls and listen for their replies. The evening finishes with hot chocolate and cookies for all participants.


PLEASE NOTE: Children under age 5 will not be permitted. The success of this program depends on silence by all participants during the outdoor portion. Thank you for your understanding.
