It’s Owl Prowl season! Join naturalist Lon Myers for a short talk about the owls that are native to our area, and then accompany Lon as he leads a walk into the nearby woods during which he will call to a variety of owls with the hope of hearing a response and, if lucky, seeing these elusive creatures.
Bring a flashlight and wear warm clothing and, if joining Lon on the walk, wear footwear appropriate for a nighttime walk on uneven ground. Keep in mind that snow and ice may be present. The picnic pavilion where we will meet will provide shelter in the event of rain and is ADA accessible. A portable restroom is available on site.
Lon Myers has led a variety of nature walks and talks for nearly 50 years and recently led a walk at Oakbourne Park where he successfully called in screech owls. Lon is currently the Chairman of the Allegany Nature Pilgrimage, an annual event in its 65th year which is open to everyone and sponsored by the Audubon Societies of Buffalo, Jamestown, Erie, and Rochester.
This event is co-sponsored and hosted by Westtown Township.
