We are very lucky in having Tim Puopolo, who currently works for Fish &Wildlife, present his unique and popular program about owls.
“Discover the secret world of owls! Owls are active in establishing their winter territory in the fall, so this is a great time to go on the prowl. Come and learn about the life strategy of these stealth predators and their role in the ecosystem and society. After the indoor part of the program, we'll go on a moonlit hike and attempt to lure the owls to us. The event will end with stories around the campfire. Dress for the weather! This presentation will take place at Oxbow's new Visitor Facility located at 80 Hospital Rd. in Devens, MA. Space is limited so RSVP to Tim (firstname.lastname@example.org). All ages welcome.”"Events and Programs" and "Educational Programs" might provide more information!
