The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center will be presenting a public program on owls. Hooting with Owls will be held on Sunday, March 26th at 2:00 pm.

With the approach of dusk, the woodland owls rouse from daytime roosts to search for prey. In addition to hunting, owls will spend the early spring through autumn reinforcing pair bonds, establishing and defending nesting territories, and incubating and rearing owlets. Following a slide presentation on owl natural history with naturalist Pat Carney, enjoy a late afternoon walk through the woodland to the beaver pond to look for, listen, and hoot with the owls. Perhaps participants will hear the trill of a screech owl or the raucous calls of a pair of barred owls. Participants should dress for a cool weather hike.

There is a $4.00 fee per person with a family rate of $12.00. Children under the age of 3 are free. The Amboy 4-H Environmental Education Center is located at 748 State Route 183 in Amboy, between Routes 69 and 13 near Williamstown in eastern Oswego County. For more information about this and other programs, please call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County 963-7286, ext. 400.

Cornell Cooperative Extension is an employer and educator recognized for valuing AA/EEO, Protected Veterans, and Individuals with Disabilities, and provides equal program and employment opportunities.
