WI – Evidence of Owls
February 7, 2015 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 10:00am on Saturday, repeating until March 21, 2015
Graceful, mysterious, and reportedly wise, owls weather the winter cold alongside us.
Come join us to learn more about the owls of Wisconsin on Saturday, February 7,
at 10:30am. Learn more about the owls that hunt on the refuge using their unique
adaptations to successfully locate and capture their prey. Families will have the
opportunity to dissect a real sterilized owl pellet and, like a biologist, piece back
together clues about what the owl ate based on what was regurgitated. This program
is best suited for curious naturalists of six years of age and above.
For more information, contact Park Ranger Katie Julian at (608) 779-2391 or visit the
facility, located at N5727 County Road Z, Onalaska, WI. The Visitor Center is open Monday
– Friday, 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
The Visitor Center will be open two Saturdays in February and March to host programs for
family audiences (1st Saturday of the month) and presentations for older audiences (3rd
Saturday of the month), from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The dates of these Saturday
programs include: February 7, February 21, March 7, and March 21. The Visitor Center will
also be open on Saturday, February 28th, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to celebrate the life
and legacy of conservationist Aldo Leopold. Free activities for people of all ages will be
offered from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
