Owl Prowls – Coming Soon!

Owl Prowls are almost here! 

Owl Prowls, one of the World Bird Sanctuary’s most popular audience participation programs, will be starting soon.  We will begin taking reservations Sept. 1st for this hugely popular event.

Guests will join one of our Naturalists for this evening program.  It starts with a 45 minute indoor presentation featuring live flying owls, followed by an easy night hike around our grounds as we try to find the wild Barred Owls and Great Horned Owls that are busy setting up territories and finding mates for the winter owl breeding season!

Guests will be invited to try their hand at calling to the owls (otherwise known as the “hoot”).  Click Here to hear the female Great Horned Owl's call.  Click Here to hear the male Great Horned Owl's call.

On your night hike you may hear Great Horned Owls calling...or you may hear the call of local Barred Owls.
