  • Picnic Point 2004 University Bay Drive Madison, WI, 53705 United States (map)

This trip is canceled due to ice and cold.

We’re sorry, this field trip is full!

Enjoy the nighttime woods on this evening Owl Prowl at Picnic Point. Meet at Lot 129 at the entrance to Picnic Point, and bring a headlamp or flashlight if you like. We will begin birding as dusk falls, and continue our Owl Prowl until 9:00 p.m. Great horned and barred owls are regularly seen in this area, and we may get lucky and find screech owls as well! We will have binoculars for loan.
