Listening Ears: Owling For Childre
March 9 @ 5:15 pm - 6:30 pm
Thursday, March 9, 5:15-6:30pm
Location: Bussey Street Gate (see map). Parking available on Bussey Street outside of the gate.
Bring your young naturalists to the Arboretum for an evening of owling. Listen to "Owl Moon"—a story of a little girl’s owling adventure with her father—then walk up Beech Path with listening ears. With luck, we'll hear the tell-tale hoot of a Great Horned Owl.
This child-centric program is designed for families with children age 4-10. Families are encouraged to bring flashlights, binoculars, and warm clothing.
The program will include walking 15 minutes from Bussey Street Gate to Beech Path, sitting on grass for about 20 minutes, then climbing a moderate hill with gravel and woodchip paths. Strollers will need to remain at the bottom of the hill.
Please sign up if you plan to attend.
