Learn to Listen for Owls, a Special December Bird & Nature Adventure
Saturday, December 11th at 4:30pm
Join Aldo Leopold Nature Center Environmental Educator Melissa Kesling and Josh Seibel with Madison Parks for a free, family-friendly guided hike to Learn to Listen for Owls. Discover the owls that call Madison home – huge Great Horned Owls, medium-sized Barred Owls and tiny Screech Owls – and can be found throughout the city in parks and yards. What do they eat? What is an owl pellet? Do they always sleep during the day? When do they make their nests? Join us for an easy walk on the paths at Aldo Leopold Nature Center and Edna Taylor Conservation Park with stops along the way to listen for the distinctive hoots and calls of owls. If you’re fortunate, you may just get to see an owl sitting quietly on a big tree limb above your head. Dress warm. The event is free and registration is encouraged.
Co-sponsored by Madison FUN Friends of Urban Nature partner groups Madison Parks, Madison Audubon, Aldo Leopold Nature Center, and Friends of Edna Taylor Conservation Park. Contact (608) 698-0104 for more information.
