Eyes on Owls - A Valentine's Day Presentation
Looking for something to do with your sweetie on Valentine's Day?
Join Great Glen Trails in welcoming Marcia and Mark Wilson, and their fine feathered friends,
for the "Owls of the World," live owl presentation!
Everyone LOVES owls! Yet, how often do you get to see an owl up close? Join teacher/naturalist Marcia Wilson and author/photographer/naturalist Mark Wilson in sharing their passion for owls! "Owls of the World - Who's Watching You?" is a live owl presentation, with appearances from (6) different owls from New England and beyond. Mark and Marcia share the field marks, signs and naturalist's skills that you can use to find wild owls without disturbing them. Next, you meet six live owls (from small to huge) up close.
Everyone participates in a hooting lesson and learns tips on how to attract and protect owls near you. While the selection of live owls varies from group to group, chances are you'll meet New England's tiniest owl, the Northern Saw-Whet Owl (weighing in at 4 ounces) along with the world's largest owl, the Eurasian Eagle Owl (check out that five foot wingspan!). Other species that figure prominently in our program can include Eastern Screech Owl, Barred Owl, Barn Owl, Great-horned Owl, Snowy Owl and Spectacled Owl.
Meet Marcia & Mark Wilson
Marcia and Mark Wilson founded Eyes On Owls in 1994, as an educational enterprise that brings wild owls to your school or group so you can learn more about your wild neighbors and their habitats.
The owls they care for at Eyes On Owls are permanently disabled - that is they can't survive on their own in the wild. Many of the owls are survivors of collisions with vehicles. Each owl is given a safe, clean, low stress home and all the mice they need to eat (owls don't eat plants, of course).
Marica and Mark have federal and state permits to display the owls for educational programs. The owls ARE NOT pets. Our owls have sharp talons and beaks, special dietary and health requirements, as well as special housing we custom build for each bird. Non-flighted owls get handicapped ramps in their aviaries.
* Registrations for the Eyes on Owls presentations at Great Glen Trails, are NON-TRANSFERABLE and NON-REFUNDABLE.
