Everyone loves owls! Yet, how many of us have ever seen a live owl up close?
In Eyes On Owls, Naturalist Marcia Wilson and photographer Mark Wilson will introduce you to six different live owls from New England and far beyond. Some owls, like the Great Horned, Barred and Eastern Screech Owls are fairly common in our area. Others, like Snowy Owls, Great Grays, and Boreal Owls, are rather rare.
Mark and Marcia founded Eyes On Owls in 1994 as a way to rescue owls that are injured (often by cars) and cannot be returned to the wild. Eyes On Owls helps the public understand these magnificent animals and the best ways to protect them.
Eyes On Owls will share the field marks, signs and naturalist’s skills that you can use to see wild owls without disturbing them, while introducing you to six live owls up close. They will also share tips on how to protect owls near you.
Explore the world of owls with two talented naturalists and their six lively owls on a beautiful summer day at ifarm!
All attendees aged 3 and up require a ticket for this event.
This is a great event for families: Mark and Marcia love to bring up children as volunteers during the event.
