Owl Prowl at the Highlands Nature Center

Written by 

Come learn about and see live owls Thursday evening, June 16, at The Highlands Biological Foundation’s Nature Center amphitheatre.

The event begins at 8 p.m. with an hour-long educational presentation by the Carolina Raptor Center in collaboration with the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society. Then, at nightfall, participants will have the chance to learn the different calls of local owls from members of the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society before they split into small groups to prowl for owls.  

The “Owl Prowl” is part of the foundation’s “Think About Thursdays” summer lecture series that focuses on the beauty and biodiversity of the southern Appalachians.

Participants should wear light clothing and bring a flashlight. The Owl Prowl is free to the public but contributions to the Carolina Raptor Center are appreciated.

Parking is extremely limited, so visitors are encouraged to carpool or park downtown and walk. 828.526.2221 or www.wcu.edu/hbs.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
