Muir Woods marks the southern front in a battle for survival between two competing owl species. On this strenuous 5 mile dusk hike we will look and listen for the owls that call Muir Woods home, learn more about their history and ecology, and receive the latest research updates on our most famous resident, the Spotted Owl. Find out how the Barred Owl emerged as a potent new threat in our own back yard. Meet Steffen Bartschat at the entrance to Muir Woods National Monument. No dogs. Suitable for teens and up. Must be able to walk briskly up a steep hill. Bring flashlight, layers, water, snack, $3 optional material fee. RSVP (415) 388-2596.
