Owls live all around us but are very good at evading detection. Come learn how to identify our local owls by size, shape, silhouette, and sound with the Owl Center’s human and owl staff. Following the indoor portion of the program, participants will carpool to known owl territories in and around Houston to call and listen for Eastern Screech-Owls, Barred Owls, and Great Horned Owls.

Meet at the International Owl Center no later than the listed time (the Center will open 30 minutes prior to the program start time.) Plan to spend the first 45 minutes indoors (chairs will be placed to keep households at least six feet apart) learning to identify owls by sound before going outdoors. Dress for the weather, and try to wear clothes that don’t make noise when you move. You will drive your vehicle following our staff to 3-4 different locations within 10 miles of Houston. Calling will be done from the side of the road, so very little walking is required. Children are welcome, but must be able to stand quietly for at least 10 minutes at a time. Expect to return to the Owl Center roughly 2.5 – 3 hours after program start time.

Masks are required for the indoor and outdoor portions of the program.

Programs will be canceled in case of significant wind, rain, severe road conditions, or low enrollment and refunds will be issued for these reasons. Cancellations will be announced at least 24 hours prior to the program time. If YOU need to cancel your reservation, please contact us at least 48 hours in advance.

There will be 15-20 participants per program.
Cost: $10 for members; $15 for non-members
