Conservation Halton is offering their “owl prowls” again! Here’s all the info:
Mountsberg Conservation Area is once again hosting its popular winter Owl Prowl programs this January. Intrepid prowlers will learn about native Ontario owls during a winter night hike to search for wild local owls. There are four Owl Prowl nights scheduled: Friday, January 11 and 25 are advanced Prowls for Adults, while Saturday, January 12 and 26 are all-ages Family Nights. Both types of Owl Prowls feature visits with the Mountsberg Raptor Centre’s resident birds of prey to give guests a memorable ‘nose to beak’ experience.
The Family Nights also include a puppet show and a special story time, while the advanced Prowl gives nature-minded adults a chance to learn the fine details of owl behaviour, anatomy, and natural history.
Admission for the Owl Prowl programs is by advance registration only online at www.conservationhalton.ca/events. Call Mountsberg at (905) 854-2276 for more information on the program. Owl Prowl fees are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors (ages 65 years and over), $10 for children (ages 5 to 14 years) and free for children ages four years and under. The fees do not include HST.
About the Mountsberg Raptor Centre
The Mountsberg Raptor Centre is currently home to 16 different species of native birds of prey. Many of the resident birds of prey have permanent injuries that have left them incapable of surviving on their own in the wild. In many cases, these injuries were caused by human activity. With the help of these feathered ambassadors, the Mountsberg Raptor Centre teaches community members about the native birds of prey that share our environment and how to reduce our environmental impact.
