Full Moon Owl Prowl

Looking for more cool stuff to do?
We've got tons more fun events and programs in your area – sign up for our monthly enews here!

Winter is one of the best times to look for owls! With all our deciduous trees bare, it’s easier to spot owls roosting. Plus, January through March is prime breeding season. With guidance from members of the South Shore Bird Club, let's take advantage of the season and the light from the full moon to look and listen for owls living at Bird Park. The moon itself is quite special as it's both a supermoon (when moon is closest to Earth) and a blue moon (the second full moon in one month). During our walk, we’ll stop by the office to grab a warm drink before we continue on our prowl. Meet at the park entrance at the parking lot of the Union Congregational Church (55 Rhoades Avenue, East Walpole). Some of the paths we’ll be walking are unpaved and/or uneven. Please bring a flashlight, just in case the light of the moon isn’t sufficient to light your way!

Please contact Maura (mogara@thetrustees.org; 508-668-6136) with questions or to check for cancellation in case of inclement weather.
