Owls brave the cold – and so will we – for nesting season with some of their eggs hatching in February! We will take a 1 mile walk over possibly snowy, icy, or uneven ground to explore where at Canoe Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary these mysterious nocturnal birds have made their territory. Pre-registration required as spaces are limited.
To register, go to https://www.massaudubon.org/program-catalog/results/pleasant-valley, or call 413-637-0320. Open to all ages.
