Ever wonder whooo-whooo-whooo you hear calling in the woods on winter nights? If so, please join us for a lively program to learn about our local owls and their unique adaptations, followed by a walk in the woods where we will look and listen for these amazing creatures. It’ll be a hoot!
This fully outdoor program, presented by DCNR educator Jared Brandt, will begin in the campground amphitheater. The presentation will last 30-45 minutes, with the owl prowl immediately following. The prowl will cover up to 1 mile on paved and gravel roads.
All are welcome at this family-friendly event, although children should be able to stand quietly for up to 10 minutes during the prowl. Bring flashlights – red lights are especially good – but be aware we will try to keep bright lights to a minimum as we enter the owls’ world of the dark. Wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather.
This event will be cancelled in the case of inclement weather.
To find us in French Creek State Park: from Park Rd, follow the signs to the campground. Once on the road leading to the campground, go up the hill and pass by the contact station (which will be closed) to the amphitheater just beyond the contact station on the right.
