How many types of owls can be found in Iowa? What is the most common Iowa owl? Which Iowa owl is known as the “skunk owl?” Join birder, Kelly McKay (BioEco Research and Monitoring Center) and Jones County Conservation Department staff for “Iowa’s Owls Presentation and Owl Prowl” at 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Central Park.
Participants will meet in the lower level of the Central Park Nature Center at 6:30 p.m. for an informative PowerPoint presentation on the owls of Iowa. Then head for an evening “Owl Prowl” along the trails of Central Park as we attempt to see and hear local owls. Come for both the indoor presentation and the hike, or just come at 7:30 p.m. for the outdoor “Owl Prowl” hike. Wear hiking footwear and dress for the weather. Please contact Michele at (319) 481-7987 or firstname.lastname@example.org to preregister for this event by 4 p.m. Thursday.
