Michigan State Parks Hosting Owl Prowls
If you've never seen a real owl up close, or for that matter even heard one, then you don't want to miss out on this fascinating nature walk.
Join one of our local naturalists on a 30-45 minute walk along the woods. Owls will be called ... listen closely to see if they respond. Hopefully you'll see one up on his perch, wide-eyed and regal as he surveys his woods. In years past, we've seen or heard Screech Owls, Barred Owls and Great Horned Owls at our Owl Prowls. Either before or after the hike, depending on the location, an educational session, s'mores and storytelling around the bonfire will also take place.
Wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather, as you will be outside for the duration. Events are typically held rain or shine. Bring something to drink, a roasting stick if you have one, camp chair, flashlight or miner's cap and a great outdoor nature story to share.
Some events require pre-registration. A Recreation Passport is required for park entrance. If you have any questions, please contact the park directly.
