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.
