Owl Howl

  • This event has passed.

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 our trees. Owls are nocturnal so join us as we search for them just after dusk. Following a brief introductory lecture, we’ll head out into the garden and listen for their unique calls. Dress for the weather. (Class size is limited.)

This program takes place in-person (at Mt. Cuba Center) Thursday, January 13 (Rain Date: Thursday, January 20). Find out about an alternate section of this program here.
