Join Master Birder, Frank Mantilik, and Grace Farms Nature Initiative Director, Mark Fowler, for an introduction to our area’s owl species. Participants will be led on a guided walk through the Grace Farms Walking Trails as night falls, hoping to hear and see a few of these spectacular species.
We’ll be walking on mown trails, which may be wet, so please wear appropriate footwear, and dress for the weather.
