Join us at Lookout Rock for a fascinating evening of catching and banding Saw-whet Owls. Many years we capture more than 100 owls as they migrate south. You will learn this owl's life history, how we age and sex them, and watch the whole process from capture to release. To add extra excitement to the evening, we often hear other owls vocalize [Barred, Screech, and Gt. Horned] plus coyotes and we frequently catch flying squirrels and bats in the nets as well. Upon registration you'll receive directions to the site in Northbridge MA. Participants must meet at the parking lot promptly at 7pm but may leave whenever they wish. Instructions and Directions: Upon registration, we will provide directions to the site (in Uxbridge, MA) where we have ample parking so that you can come and go at your convenience. Dress warm. Registration is required. Waitlist email or call 508-528-3140.

This is a night to explore the fascinating world of owls and other creatures of the night at Stony Brook. We will start the evening with a short introduction to the creatures of the night living on the Sanctuary grounds, practice our owl hoots and take a look at what makes nighttime critters so special. Then we'll head out on the trail to look and listen. We might hear, or even see, owls, beavers, frogs, otters, bats or other nocturnal animals. After our walk we'll warm up with some hot chocolate. Instructions and Directions: Children welcome, 6 and up. Registration is required. Register online or call 508-528-3140 to register by phone.
