We are excited to welcome Tesla, the Screech Owl, to our new location for a night hike.  The program will kick off with an indoor presentation led by Biologist & Ranger Eric Powers.  Learn how to identify owls by sight and sound, and how to attract these beneficial birds to your own backyard.  Then we’ll head out for a very quiet guided night walk in search of owls and other nighttime wildlife using a fun, safe, and easy method. Ranger Eric will teach you how to develop your own night vision – flashlights are not needed.  Hot cocoa and refreshments included. For more information about Ranger Eric, visit his website at
