DNR to host Owl Prowl at Lake Hudson SRA

2013 Owl Prowl Flyer - Lake Hudson

It is that time of year again where owls will be calling in the countryside at dusk. Join us for a night walk at Hudson SRA to try and call in owls and hear a response. Tracy Ball from the Department of Natural Resources will be on hand to showcase some cool owl features and I will be leading the walk! Last year we had about 75 people show up even though the weather wasn’t ideal and some of us heard a Great Horned Owl. If you plan on attending, please dress for the weather! See the flyer for more details.
