Have you ever met a live owl? You can at Greenbelt Park on October 15th. Secret Garden Birds and Bees will be there with our Wildlife Ambassador to tell you all about the wild owls that live in the park and probably right in your own backyard too!
You’ll learn what they look like and how they sound, where they nest, what they eat, how they raise their young, and why they are very good neighbors. We’ll even give you some hints on how to find them and what we can all do to create a healthy environment where they can thrive.

Saturday October 29 6:00 p.m. The Goatman

As Hallowe’en approaches, shiver with the frost on the pumpkin (or with fear of the Goatman?), and warm yourself before a fire, as a park ranger describes the myth (or is it?!) of the “Goatman,” a bizarre creature sighted frequently in this vicinity. Beware, because the Goatman may be in the Greenbelt woods, and may be glimpsed in the firelight! The Goatman lives!
