Amherstburg Looking for a magical way to celebrate this spooky season? Join us for an Owl-oween Owl Prowl! Starting at the new Outdoor Classroom at Holiday Beach Conservation Area, learn more about the owls of Ontario, their adaptations, calls, and behaviours.  Then, experience an amazing guided walk through the woods, looking and listening for owls.

“Exploring nature in the dark is a special experience on its own,” says Kris Ives, ERCA’s Education Coordinator.  “However, when circumstances are just right and we’re able to call in an owl, it’s really an extraordinary experience.”

Due to the nature of this event, it is best suited for guests aged 7 and up. Attendees should remember to dress for the weather. Boots are recommended.  COVID-19 protocols including physical distancing will be implemented and masks will be required.

Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required. Register early to avoid disappointment.

The Owl Prowl will take place on Friday, October 30, with one hike beginning at 6:15pm and a second beginning at 7pm.  The cost is $15.00 per person and can be purchased at https://owl-oweenowlprowl.eventbrite.ca .

Since 1973, Essex Region Conservation has been sustaining and enriching the environment of the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island region to ensure it is the Place for Life.
