The Owl Prowl is back in Highlands

Written by 

A birds of prey program will put participants face to face with live raptors and give them a chance to spot owls in the night.

The annual “Owl Prowl” will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 13, at the amphitheater behind the Highlands Nature Center. The night will begin with an educational program about birds of prey found in the mountains, featuring live raptors from the Charlotte Raptor Rehab Center. Afterward, attendees will break off into small groups and take a night walk through town in hopes of spotting owls.

The event is sponsored by the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society in conjunction with the Highlands Biological Station. It is open to children and adults and is free to attend. Those who wish to participate are asked to bring a flashlight. Parking is limited, carpooling encouraged.

    That was the question constantly asked to me when friends and curious folks alike found out I was interviewing Kevin Costner. Yes, that Kevin Costner. You see the Academy Award-winning actor/director fronts a country/blues band called Modern West. They’ll be performing at the Smoky Mountain Center for the Performing Arts in Franklin on April 24.
