Nature at Night!

12/06/12Great Horned owl

 Nature @ Night coming soon at Prairie Wetlands Learning Center!   Many things have been written about night.  The following quote written decades ago by artist Vincent Van Gogh reminds us that night is always a unique time in nature, he wrote, “I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.”      Prairie Wetlands Learning Center (PWLC) will again provide free to families and friends in west central Minnesota the well -received program Nature @ Night. Nature at Night is for families, and those interested in what happens in nature at Prairie Wetlands Learning Center after sunset. The special focus of this year’s program is owls! Come and find out if the night is more alive, more colored than the day!   Please bring your family or a friend to Prairie Wetlands Learning Center in Fergus Falls on Thursday, December 6 from 5:00-7:00 PM to be a part of Nature @ Night. Join PWLC staff to discover new wonders about owls, these feathered night creatures, with super hearing and vision. The PWLC will be open by 5:00 p.m. to give visitors a chance to tour the facility and visit the Bluestem Bookstore.  Starting at 5:30p.m., you will have the opportunity to learn new wonders about the owls of our area: the Screech Owl, Barred Owl and the amazing Great Horned Owl. Presentations are scheduled to start at 5:30p.m. This will allow visitors time to get home from work and to the PWLC to participate in this exciting program. After the brief indoor presentations, we will head out in the field to explore the prairie at night and search for evidence of owls!  Be sure to bring all of your winter gear like insulated boots and mittens, winter coat and hat, and snow pants. All ages are encouraged to attend.  Some visitors may wish to participate in the indoor presentation and field investigation while others might decide to stay indoors during the excursion. The choice is yours, but a night hike on the prairie is a truly special experience! Please join us for Nature @ Night!
