Did you know that Great Horned Owls are the first birds to nest in Michigan? January and February mark┬áthe 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.

Ages 5+. Children under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
