Backus Owl Prowl: A Nocturnal Adventure

March 6, 2017

Backus Heritage Conservation Area’s popular Owl Prowl program returns on March 25th. This evening program starts at 6 pm and offers participants an opportunity for some outdoor fun while learning about local owls.

Join Fiona Navickas, Long Point Region Conservation Authority’s (LPRCA) Outdoor Educator, to learn why owls are so important to the environment. “The Owl Prowl is a great event for people of all ages,” Navickas says. “The people taking part learn amazing facts about owls and the ways they adapt – and normally find the event to be a ‘hoot’.”

The evening features a visit from the Canadian Raptor Conservancy with live owls that attendees can meet up close and personal.

Attendees will also walk through Backus Heritage Conservation Area on a guided hike to look and listen for signs of owls following the indoor presentation.

Admission to the Owl Prowl is $2 per child, $4 per adult or a $10 family package.

Backus Heritage Conservation Area, where history meets nature, is located two kilometres north of Port Rowan.
