Join Bob Walton and the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge as we travel into the night to listen for the hoots, wails, and shrieks of owls on Saturday, June 22. The indoor program will be held at the Lost Mound Unit Office, of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, beginning at 7:30 p.m. followed by the “Owl Prowl”. Bob will converse with the owls, with a chance of drawing them closer for a good view. There will also be a good chance to hear the whip-poor-wills calling as we travel the wildlife drive.Lost Mound Unit Office (formerly the Savanna Army Depot) is located about 8 miles north of Savanna, turn left on Army Depot Rd and follow the brown signs.
