Snowy 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!

Wide-open coastal sites are the location of choice for wintering Snowy Owls; common perches are dunes and salt hay staddles. In winters past, the owls have been frequent visitors to the Crane Wildlife Refuge. Join us as we hike the dunes in search of these magnificent birds. Unlike most owls, snowy owls are diurnal—they hunt and are active both day and night – so we have a good chance of sighting one even in the daylight hours!

 

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 ½ - 3 miles. Suggested ages 13 and older.

An email with details about where to meet, what to bring, etc., will be sent to all registered participants a few days before the event.
