This event has sold out.

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 for a family snowy owl prowl as we hike the dunes in search of these magnificent birds. As a family hike, this hike will be shorter and slower than our standard snowy owl prowl, focusing on engaging children in the natural world. If you are an adult with no or older children who would prefer a more serene hiking experience, please check out or standard Snowy Owl Prowl events. 

Family pricing includes 2 adults and up to 2 children. If your family is larger, please purchase 2 family tickets. 

Please note: We will be hiking up and down dunes, through soft sand, for approximately 2 miles. 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 to share between us. 

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.
