The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area will be hosting a cooperative program with Cumberland Mountain State Park about a fascinating family of nocturnal raptors on Saturday, January 24, at 2 p.m. Central time at the Gateway to the Big South Fork Visitor Center in Crossville, Tennessee.  Meet with National Park Service Ranger Mary Grimm and State Park Ranger Monica Johnson from Cumberland Mountain State Park and learn about owls. They will present an interpretive presentation about two species of owls, the barred owl (Strix varia) and the screech owl (Megascops asio), both found in the Big South Fork area. Ranger Johnson will use her owls to inspire learning about these unique creatures. Whooo knows, you too may even learn to speak their language!
