Grab Your Camera | The Next North Tonawanda Owl Prowl is Scheduled

Grab Your Camera | The Next North Tonawanda Owl Prowl is Scheduled

Join us on Saturday, October 21, 2017 as we hike through the Klydell Wetlands, part of the North Tonawanda Audubon Preserve. Our guide will be Tom Kerr, a Naturalist with the Buffalo Audubon Society. We will again be searching for the Eastern Screech Owls that call this forested wetland preserve home.

On our Spring hike, we saw three Eastern Screech Owls within minutes of entering the preserve; we are hoping to be as lucky this time. If you’ve never seen one of these beautiful little owls up close and in the wild, this is a definite must for you.

Pre-Registration is required by calling the Buffalo Audubon Society at 1-585-457-3228. They charge $5 for this event and accept cash the night of the prowl. Waterproof footwear is recommended, as it can be very wet and muddy, after all, it is a wetlands. The hike begins at 6:30 pm and goes until approximately 8 pm. Meet us at the intersection of Raymond and Birch Streets (off of Nash Road) in North Tonawanda.
