Event Description: What is an Owl Prowl? You prowl the woods after dark hoping to hear the call of an owl of course! In celebration of National Wildlife Refuge Week, October 14-20th, the Friends of the Erie National Wildlife Refuge will be hosting an Owl Prowl on Saturday, October 27th at 7:00pm. We will be meeting at Refuge Headquarters Building near Guys Mills for an educational program on owls and then we will venture out into the woods. As we prowl the woods on the Refuge we will be using recordings of owl calls to try to get a response from these nocturnal birds. If we are lucky we may hear from a Great Horned or Barred Owl, the most common species of owls known to nest on the Erie National Wildlife Refuge. The size of the group will be limited so pre-registration is a must. Call the Refuge at 814-789-3585 to reserve your spot on the Owl Prowl. Please dress for the weather, wear suitable footwear for hiking in the woods and bring a flashlight.
