SOLD OUT: Snowy Owl Prowl

Sunday, January 19

Register Now

Wide-open coastal sites are the location of choice for wintering Snowy Owls; common perches are dunes and salt hay staddles. In winters past, these 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 during the day – so we can take advantage of the sun and early afternoon warmth as we prowl the dunes!

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 3-3½ miles. While we keep a reasonable pace, this is a more strenuous hike. Sturdy shoes are necessary and trekking poles are recommended for anyone with balance concerns. Because we will be looking for Snowy Owls on distant dunes, please bring binoculars if you have them. We will have a few pairs available for use. You are welcome to bring photography equipment, but keep in mind that you will have to hike with whatever you bring. If you are interested in a private photography hike, please get in touch. 

Weather cancellation policy: All trips will take place rain or shine with the following exceptions: If there is a high confidence that thunder and lightning will be present, we may cancel a trip up to one hour in advance. If the forecast is for steady and heavy rain all day, we may decide to cancel by 3pm on the day before the event. If either of these happens, all registrants will be notified by email and/or phone with as much notice as possible and issued full refunds.
