Are you looking for a different kind of hooting and hollering on New Year’s Eve? Come to the International Owl Center in Houston at 6:30 p.m. for a New Year’s Eve Owl Prowl.
Owls live all around us but are very good at evading detection. Come learn how to identify local owls by size, shape, sound and silhouette with human and owl staff from the International Owl Center. Following the indoor portion of the program participants will carpool to known owl territories in and around Houston to call for Eastern screech-owls, barred owls, and Great Horned Owls.
Dress for the weather and try to wear soft clothes that don’t make noise when you move. Calling will be done from the side of the road, so very little walking is required. Children are welcome, but must be able to stand quietly in the cold for at least 10 minutes at a time. Meet at the International Owl Center at 6:30 p.m. and expect to return between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The cost for the program is $7 per person for Owl Center members and $10 for non-members. Reservations are strongly encouraged by December 29. Call 507-896-6957 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to make reservations or for more information. Everyone who has made a reservation will be notified if the program is cancelled due to rain, snow, wind, or low registration. The International Owl Center is located at 126 East Cedar Street in downtown Houston.
