Screech owl

SUTHERLAND—O’Brien County Conservation will host an “Owl Prowl” program at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 19, at Dog Creek Park southeast of Sutherland.

Participants are asked to gather at the park’s south parking lot.

They will learn a bit about owls and then set out on the trail to attempt to “call” in these magnificent birds.

Participants are encouraged to dress appropriately for spending time outdoors. December is a great time to listen for these nocturnal birds as they start to stake their territory.

The interactive program is an excellent opportunity for people of all ages to learn more about owls.
