"Whooo is out there?" Owls have fascinated mankind for centuries, from the wise owl of the Greek goddess Athena to Winnie the Pooh's friend. To learn more about these creatures of the night, join rangers from Ozark National Scenic Riverways on an Owl Prowl. We'll learn fact and folklore about these little understood hunters of the night. Using recorded owl calls, rangers will try to get the owls to answer and maybe even approach close enough for a good look! The walk will be less than a mile, but dress warm because it'll be chilly!

This free program will begin at 5:30 PM at the Alley Spring General Store Visitor Center on Thursday, February 13. Alley Spring is located six miles west of Eminence, MO, on State Route 106.Meet at the General Store, uphill from the Mill. Please dress warmly and all children must be accompanied by an adult.

Ozark National Scenic Riverways preserves the free-flowing Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, the surrounding natural resources, and the unique cultural heritage of the Ozark people.For more information visit, www.nps.gov/ozar
