This event is postponed to the rain date of Thursday, January 26. 

Many people have heard an owl, but few have ever seen one. Mt. Cuba’s varied landscapes and topography provide the ideal habitats for four of Delaware’s native owl species — the barred, barn, great horned, and Eastern screech — and winter is the best time to spot them roosting in the trees. Owls are nocturnal, so join us as we search for them just after dusk. Following a brief introductory lecture, attendees will head out into the garden and listen to their unique calls. Dress for the weather. (Class size is limited.)

This program takes place in-person at Mt. Cuba Center on Wednesday, January 25, 2023 (Snow Date: Thursday, January 26)
